Horse Riding

With hundreds of kilometres of beach, woodland and designated tracks, there can be few better ways to view the beautiful landscape of Donegal than on horseback. A morning stroll on our 2 mile beach in front of the house will more often than not offer guests a glimpse of horses from a host of local stables on the gallop.
