Horseback riding near Dromoland Castle on an Irish Cob
Need to know:
Ballyhannon House offers one, two and three hour horse rides (or horse trekking) through the Irish forest and countryside. Additionally, Ballyhannon offers riding lessons and a pub trek. I highly recommend the woodland trek for its scenic beauty. All rides start with a cup of coffee or tea in the Garden Gazebeo (how civilized) followed with a short equine safety lesson. Guests are given helmets and boots, if necessary and escorted with a guide on the bridal paths.
