Mountain View is a great place for riding and seeing the area. The staff are excellent and the horses are well kept. The journey was beautiful and 2 hours would be great. The 3 hour tour takes you additionally into the beautiful wooded area.

Hello, We offer 2 options for the beach ride. A shorter 2 hour beach only trek and a longer 4 hour combination trek which includes both Burren and beach trekking.
I have been trying to make a reservation but have not gotten any response for over a week. What is the best way?
