4 hour O’ Connors or Dernish Island Trek
Any riders dream; discover the unspoilt and expansive beaches on horseback! Feel the thrill of crossing an Atlantic channel to O’Connor’s or Dernish Island.
Your horse can enjoy the salty island grass while you relax, have a snack and explore the sites of ancient farm life on the island. A group of young horses and our dry stock cattle herd roam the islands.
Seals and migratory birds can often be spotted in the estuary.
Experienced riders will have plenty of opportunity for a hearty gallop and some jumping over stone walls (optional).
4 hour Mullaghmore Coastal Ride
After an exhilarating ride on Trawalua beach, follow the boundary of Classiebawn Estate to Mullaghmore.
This little fishing village boasts a picturesque 19th century stone built harbour.
The ride takes you along the headland with some breath-taking views of majestic sea cliffs and the Castle, a signature view point of the Wild Atlantic Way. It was here that Lord Mountbatten, great grandson of Queen Victoria, was killed by a bomb planted on his boat by the IRA in 1979.
On days with a serious swell, top surfers from all over the world come here to take on a wave of up to 50 foot.
On this trail we take a break in the Pier Head pub overlooking the harbour.
