Ballyfin Horse Riding

Set at the foot of the Slieve Bloom Mountains in the centre of Ireland, Ballyfin House is a place of history and romance, of tranquility and great natural beauty that offers you the possibility to ride horses.

With 614 acres to explore, horse riding around the demesne is a wonderful experience. Experienced instructors will guide you around the demesne, trekking by the tower and lake, deep into the demesne. Horse riding lessons in the paddock can also be arranged with Ballyfin's experienced instructors. (pre-booking in advance required)
