Slieve Aughty Riding Centre in the west of Ireland offers horse riding and donkey walking, kids birthday parties, and pony rides for seasonal festivals or for the fun! The centre's 25 horses and ponies are suitable for everything from the nervous beginner to the advanced rider. Facilities include a 30x50 all weather outdoor arena, cross country course, and miles of trails for scenic treks. Beside the riding centre is The Three Towers Eco House and Organic Kitchen, where you can grab a bite to eat after your ride or stay the night as part of a package riding holiday. Ponies carry children to the Enchanted Forest and back, and riding can be booked by the hour or by the day.
