“Already looking forward to my next trek”

Trekking: 4/5 Hour O’Connor’s Island Ride

4 Hour: €90 Child, €125 Adult
5 Hour: €110 Child, €155 Adult

O Connor’s Island Ride is any riders dream; discover the unspoilt and expansive beaches on horseback!

Feel the thrill of crossing the Atlantic channel to O’Connor’s  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).

This ride needs to be arranged in advance as departure time depends on the tide.

Combines some brisk riding on the strand and a scenic stroll over the island with a picnic amongst the horses or a stop off in the village cafe  for a some sumptious food.

Advance booking essential as tidal conditions dictate departure time.

I come here maybe twice a year as it’s by far one of the best trekking experiences I have ever had. I had a 5 hour trek with Anita on Saturday and she was so friendly and just all round brilliant! Everyone is so friendly and helpful, a real credit to the place. I can’t wait to get back in the summer!
