Had an absolutely amazing time! The house is beautiful and super comfortable. Our horses were treated like stars and had everything they needed and more. The hacks were amazing and the staff super kind and chatty. Definitely recommends to anyone wanting a horsey adventure, far away from everything, in such a peaceful environment. Perfectly adapted to any levels of riding, both beginners and advanced can find what they’re looking for.

There is nothing better than a coastal trek on a horseback with your best friend. I loved every minute of our three day long holiday in Connemara, Galway and the Wild Atlantic Way with Connemara Equestrian Escapes! The scenery was breathtaking, the horses were great and cheerful and the whole trip was full of surprises. We even cantered on the beach and in the ocean under the watchful eye of our coach. Thank you Cathriona for this memorable experience and for looking after us from the moment we were collected from the bus station! You are a lovely hostess and your experience and genuine love for your horses is evident. Thank you for all your support and for customizing our stay to exactly what we wanted. (Bonus for those with special dietary requirements: we were provided delicious full vegan meals each day and all staff members were extremely helpful and considerate). I really can't recommend this trekking holiday enough. A beautiful experience I will remember forever!

After leaving Curra Farm 3 days ago I can honestly say I’m speechless. I have been trying to leave this review since I came home but I can’t articulate exactly how amazing our riding holiday was. From the moment Cait collected us to the moment she dropped us off. We flew as a group of 7 from England but as an Irish person living in Wigan for the last 3 year I can honestly say how proud I am of Cait and her trusty crew’s hospitality. Friendly and warm from the get go. Her staff were 5 star, her horses were 5 Star, looked after to the best, the tack, their stables and arena facilities all fantastic. The Ponies were all sure footed and at no time did I feel unsafe. There was plenty for all levels of riders, lots of thrills for the thrill seekers and also lovely relaxing hacks. Our picnic on the second day was nothing short of enchanting. I have never seen beauty like it. Curra farm itself was magical, beautiful, spotlessly clean house with everything you could ask for, even a hot tub! We wanted for absolutely nothing. Outside of the riding we had a couple of excursions and surprises. I won’t spoil them for the next people but everything was magical. The craic we all had!! We’re already planning our next trip back! We booked the trip originally as customers but i’d like to think we have left with friends for life. Thanks Cait, Marjorie, Wendy, Roisìn, Thomàs, Anna, Martin and Liam. If Carlsberg did holidays!
