    Amazing way to see the park and some local wildlife. I’m glad I did the 3-hr ride (even if my legs were a bit wobbly after). It was a quiet day and so it was just me and the guide, so we had a lovely time riding and chatting as she pointed out some notable spots, history, and quite a few Irish red deer who live in Killarney National Park. Highly recommend!

    Killarney was perfect for a horseriding so i booked this tour as it was the most reasonable price on the app. The stable was a bit far from my hotel, therefore a cab was a convenient choice for me. As a beginner, they assigned a calm horse and i felt totally safe with my horse. It was a spectacular view and i was able to see some deers in the National park. The guide provided clear instructions on how to guide the horse and although it was less than an hour ride, it was definitely an enjoyable ride. I liked it also because it was in a small group and you could hear the guide.

    This was such a fun an exhilarating experience. The people here are so kind and they really make sure that you are well taken care of on your horse. A ride through the park with your guides describing what you're seeing, the history of everything was so fascinating, truly a once in a lifetime experience. If you don't have a lot of experience on horses, they make sure that you are well taken care of, and the horses themselves are fantastic! Very personable, individualistic, and such a joy to get to know. Seriously, do this!
