This spot has been a scenery loving travellers dream for several hundred years, it’s mountain fringed lakes and changing sky the stuff of poetry and art. A horse ride is just another way to enjoy the quiet scenery. There are trails of different lengths on offer, from a circuit of the lakes lasting a couple of hours to guided trails lasting a week or so taking you up into the surrounding highlands, some of Irelands highest mountains, and down to the coast for some of that romantic beach length riding made more romantic and dramatic by the advertising campaign. If you’re looking for more than grand sweeping scenery this area is also full of Bronze age relics and mysterious standing stones and other out door activity providers have set up business here as well, so golfers, fishermen, walkers, sailors, cyclists and birdwatchers will also be entertained.
