*** Sample Itinerary ***
Arrive as early as you like on the first day morning and unload your horse into it's stable to rest after the journey.
A local trail ride around the grounds of the hotel will give you a feel of the wonderful scenery ahead of you for the weekend.
After checking in to your room for the night, choose to either dine at the bar or splash out and go for the full 5 course option at the main restaurant.
On day 2, after choosing from the very extensive breakfast menu, we head off from the hotel and ride around the Renvyle Peninsula. There you will have the opportunity to gallop along the strand at low tide. For lunch we will return to Renvyle House Hotel & Resort where you can use many of the facilities there.
Tonight we will dine together at the Roisin Dubh restaurant and indulge in five courses of Tim O'Sullivan's award winning cuisine.
Day 3 lends to a ride in the Aughris Peninsula after breakfast, home to the famous Wild Atlantic Way treasure that is Omey Island. With a low tide, the strand there is playground, choosing what ever pace you like. You will have time for a soup/chowder or crab claws at a local pub with beautiful vistas of the island where you can reflect on your weekend on horseback.

Renvyle House was rebuilt in the Arts & Crafts style of the 1920's after the Irish Civil War.  It is considered a building of architectural importance and, it has been the ethos of Renvyle's owners over the last few decades, to source bedroom furnishings designed and made in Ireland in keeping with the movement.
The bedrooms vary in size and style but all in keeping with the features of the historic house. The characteristics are simple, clean lines and the use of solid Irish oak and furniture are apparent throughout. The fabrics and furnishings are, as much as possible, made and woven by skilled local craftsmen.

Not too hot and not too cold – you'll find Ireland's climate just right!

In Ireland, everyone talks about the weather. Whether it's discussing the direction of the rain from a supermarket doorway, or musing that it's 75°F in March from a bar counter. Irish weather can be unpredictable, so we like to discuss it. A lot! Ireland's climate is influenced most by the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, it doesn’t have the extreme temperatures that other countries at similar latitude would have. The average temperature is a mild 50°F. A major warm ocean current called the North Atlantic Drift keeps sea temperatures mild too. Hills and mountains, mainly around the coast of Connemara, shelter the rest of the island from strong winds coming off the ocean. So while the weather can be changeable – it's rarely extreme.

The seasons: spring and summer

In spring (February to April), the average highest temperatures range from 46 to 54°F, with April considered particularly pleasant. In summer (May to July), the averages for highest temperatures are between 64 and 68°F. The warmest months, July and August, get about 18 hours of daylight and it gets dark only after 11pm. Hence the well-worn phrase in Ireland; "sure there's a grand stretch in the evenings".

The seasons: autumn and winter

In autumn, (August to October) highest temperatures hit between 64 and 57°F. September is considered a mild, temperate month. Winter air temperatures inland normally reach 46°F, while the coldest months are January and February. The temperature drops below freezing intermittently, and apart from a few freak cold snaps, snow is scarce.

When to visit Ireland

There's no such thing as a perfect time to visit Ireland. The summer months are considered high season for visitors. They come for the long sunny evenings, parks in full bloom and eating al fresco in cafés. And of course in summer, there are festivals around every corner. Autumn and spring are mid-seasons for travelers. You'll enjoy kicking bronze-burnished leaves about in autumn, while spring sees nature kick into gear and flowers blossom. As for winter, a walk through a national park on a clear, crisp winter's day can mean seeing nature at its most impressive.
