Horse Riding Holidays In Ireland

Island View offers a variety of different holiday riding packages ranging from short breaks to a full week’s riding.  we have a holiday option for everybody: for complete beginners , for very experienced riders or for families and groups of mixed level riders.

We love to  get to know our clients and their level of riding with an assessment session at the start of their holiday.  Don’t worry this is NOT A TEST, just an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the horse at the beginning of your horse riding holiday. It means we can choose the perfect equine partner for your equestrian adventures. 

We work very closely with approved and hand-picked accommodation providers nearby. All rooms are en-suite and with full Irish breakfast. There are lots of excellent restaurants in the vicinity, many specializing in local seafood.

Sligo has a lot to offer; several excellent golf links, salmon and trout fishing, sea angling and charter cruises, wind and kite surfing, stand-up paddling, heritage centres and archaeological sites, buzzy shopping and music sessions, seaweed baths, day spa and most importantly unlimited spectacular scenery. See our Things To Do page (includes restaurants). 

Non- riding travel companions can be accommodated at request.
