We took our 2 daughters here for a horse riding session while on holidays in Westport. They thoroughly enjoyed it. Padraic and his daughter were very friendly and professional and the made the girls feel at ease as they were beginners. Would highly recommend.

The BEST overseas riding experience!! The facility was clean, and the staff were knowledgeable and courteous. Clearly safety was the primary element of the ride. That made the ride FUN.

The five day ride with Drummindoo Stud was amazing! The horses were excellent quality and well matched to the riders. Padraic was a charming host and ride leader, the scenery was outstanding, and each day offered new terrain to explore. Loved every minute of it!
