Island View Riding Stables - 2 Hour Beach and Bog Ride
2 Hour Beach and Bog Ride
It combines the coastal and the rural experience: riding by the sea and riding in the Irish countryside.
The first part of your ride takes you along hidden Trawalua beach. Experienced riders go for a canter on the sandy beach while beginners will go for a relaxing stroll along the strand. Enjoy spectacular view s of the Atlantic Ocean and Classiebawn Castle towering on a rocky outcrop in the distance. Then you will follow quiet lane ways and century old bog tracks at the foot of rugged Benbulben Mountain.
You will experience a great variety of scenery in just 2 hours.
