Full description
Experience the real Wild Atlantic Way on horseback, taking in the sights and sounds of the roaring waves and exquisite landscape. This full day tour includes a 3-hour trek to Omey Island across beautiful Omey Beach at low tide and a 1.5-hour Selerna beach ride across its crescent shaped strand.

These golden beaches on the Wild Atlantic Way are carved out with bays and inlets dispersed with islands all along its rugged shoreline. Megalithic tombs dot the shore, a natural rugged landscape continually carved out by Atlantic storms.

All treks are suitable for beginner to advanced riders and include a short assessment before leaving with up to two guides depending on the number in the group and the level of experience. When the ride arrives at the beach the experienced riders can canter or gallop while the novices are kept safely in walk and trot. At the lunch or coffee break, try some delicious local seafood and artisan foods available at the local pubs in the fishing village down the road from the riding center.
