The An Sibin Riding Centre in the West of Ireland is nestled in the rolling hills of rural County Clare. Miles of quiet lanes and paths, overlooking panoramic views of the river Shannon, are perfect for a relaxed horse riding vacation in the picturesque landscape. The centre offers their An Sibin Residential Riding Holiday with guided hacks and horsemanship lessons from their lovingly restored, 300 year old traditional farmhouse with comfortable accommodation. What better way to relax and unwind after a day on horseback than with a traditional home cooked dinner before an open turf fire? This truly is a horse rider’s country idyll, perfect for getting away from it all.
All through the summer the centre runs its 6-day Galway Clare Burren Trail Ride, where you can discover Ireland’s beautiful nature and colourful history from horseback. Your horse will carry you through scenic rural Ireland with a wide variety of landscapes from bog, forest, rivers, lakes and the famous Burren National Park. Your route finishes near the Cliffs of Moher, overlooking the Aran Islands as you ride along the Wild Atlantic Way.
The centre also offers a unique combination of horse riding and sight seeing – with an Irish Castle & Monastic ruin ride. This adventure combines guided rides through the rugged beauty of the Clare countryside with tours to impressive castles, beautiful monastic ruins and ancient Celtic tombs.
Fresh country air and an unhurried way of life makes these riding holiday a back-to-nature experience like no other.
