Horse Riding Holidays (Vacations) with Horse Holiday Farm

Horse Riding Ireland - Equestrian Vacations in Sligo and Donegal
The Horse Holiday Farm is located in the most exquisite and unscathed part of the Green Isle - precisely on the North West Atlantic coastline.
The area is surrounded by the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, mountains, green fields, golden beaches and clear waters of streams and mountain lakes.
From the Horse Holiday Farm you can ride for miles on sandy beaches in both directions.
You can trek along the lanes of the locality and mountains, lakes, waterfalls and historic castles and houses.
It is named Yeat's country, the land from which the legendary Irish poet drew so much inspiration. His aura still lingers in Lissadell House. In Drumcliffe Churchyard you should take a breather and read his epitaph: "Cast a cold eye on life and death. Horseman pass by".

The Horses:
The horse is the irreplaceable degree of this holiday.
Our horse will be yours for at least a week or for as long as you decide on staying.
Our horses are mainly Irish Hunters. We have a small number of Connemara ponies, they vary in height from 14.2 h.h. to 17 h.h. They are unblemished and enjoy galloping over miles of beaches.

Donegal Trail*:
Emerald Isle - Land of colourful rainbows. In the North West corner of Ireland: Donegal, the wildest and most romantic of all Irish counties. Its austere melancholy is unforgettable! Setting off from the Horse Holiday Farm, riders will discover this region and all its beauty.

Look at the pattern of grey stone walls around the green meadows, pass by dark blue lakes, ride through boggy hills and valleys and across chocolate brown marshland. Ride along rugged coastline, rocky cliffs and on miles of sandy beaches stretching towards the horizon. Unforgettable highlight: the crashing gallop across the white sands.
Our trails lead you over low hills, through remote mountain areas and across vast boglands. They are exciting and relaxing in all kinds of weather, in rain, wind or sunshine. Anything can happen; the Irish weather is full of surprises.
Contact to the local people in Ireland is easy; the people are open and very friendly. Irish people love horses very much and they like to listen to the stories their visitors tell them. You will enjoy their hospitality.
