Amazing beach ride

"we splashed through the sea on our horses"

Individual & Group Trekking

We have horses to suit every type of rider big or small, experienced or novice, child or adult.We specialise in beach rides and even inexperienced riders can enjoy our beach treks and stunning views of Donegal Bay. 

Groups with varying riding experience will be accommodated so everybody can ride at a pace they enjoy.  For mixed ability groups or beginners, the 1 hour beach ride is ideal. The 2 hour beach and bog-land ride is also "do-able" for beginners.

Experienced riders will enjoy our 4 and 5 hour treks, such as the Mullaghmore Coastal Ride or our unique Island Ride, where you can stop for an outdoor picnic or a snack in the pub.

Day rides for more advanced riders feature either a picnic or pub lunch. We supply riding hats and boots. We are open 7 days a week all year round.

A €50 deposit is required for treks over 3 hours and group bookings payable on our FAQ page.

Our strength is that we offer a safe, enjoyable equestrian activity all year round. With so many horses and ponies to choose from, Island View Riding Stables can accommodate riding groups of all ages and abilities (e.g. family gatherings, hen parties, stag parties, students, riding clubs, corporate events, team building and staff outings, active age groups, Christmas parties, special needs groups, birthday parties of all ages).

Riders with different levels of experience will be accompanied by at least two guides. This means the group can split up for some of the hack, allowing the experienced riders to go for a canter with one guide whilst the second guide stays with the less experienced party. We make sure everybody enjoys their trek and feels comfortable with the pace of the ride. If necessary, small children or beginner riders can be taken on a lead rein. All riding activities take place outdoors. All rides are guided.

We supply riding hats, hat liners and boots. Riders should wear sensible outdoor clothing and comfortable trousers.

You can take part in all our rides, from a gentle 30 minute stroll for small kids, to a 5 or 6 hour ride with picnic or pub lunch.
