Families Reconnect on Equestrian Vacations in Ireland

Horse Gift Idea Press Release

The slow pace and beautiful terrain of the Irish countryside make a perfect setting for a family equestrian vacation. All ages and all riding abilities, from beginning to those who would like to increase their riding skills, will enjoy horse riding within all of North and South Ireland. Tourism Ireland provides a central location on its website to plan and book an Irish equestrian vacation.

High quality riding facilities, a lively equestrian scene and spectacularly pretty countryside make Ireland an increasingly popular choice for families seeking a safe, beautiful and friendly environment in which to enjoy an equestrian holiday. Parents and children find they have much in common and have plenty of quality time as they polish their riding skills. Accommodations in the Irish countryside include quaint inns, bed & breakfasts, and luxurious spas. When the family wants to take a break from the saddle, there are many other activities including golf, shopping, trekking, and visiting spas.

There are a number of ways for visitors to get in the saddle. Horse riding holidays and trail riding trips can accommodate riders of all levels. A very popular form of Irish equestrian holiday is trail riding. Trail rides offer a good balance of beach, mountain and forest riding and the organizers introduce guests to the special features of the area. Many operators offer special programs for children.

Varied riding terrain includes coastal islands, heathered hillsides, quiet roads, and forested trails where no one else may be encountered throughout the day. Become acquainted with the charm of the Irish countryside on horseback.
