Irish love of horses is world-renowned and nowhere is this truer
than in the west of Ireland, home of the legendary Connemara pony.
If your interest is either cross-country, trekking, hunting or show
jumping, or if you merely wish to see the Irish horse, then Ballyfarnon
can offer you all this and more.
From either riding on the sandy
beaches, galloping through the Atlantic waves, or trekking through
the local rugged terrain the Irish are on hand to bring to you the
delights of the Irish horse.
It will be an unforgettable experience.
At Ballyfarnon House we can assist in organising horse riding activities
for you. We particularly recommend a visit to Markree Stables from
where you can trek through beautiful landscape and experience the
tranquil and magnificent grounds of Markree Castle.
those of you with an interest in the world-famous Irish thoroughbred
then a day at an Irish race meeting is a must. Nearby racecourses
are Sligo, Roscommon and Ballinrobe.
