Escape to Connemara Equestrian
The best way to explore the desolate beauty of Connemara is from the back of a native horse says Agnes Stamp.
Ireland is a land of endless enchantments. On the west coast, teetering on the very edge of Europe, sits Connemara – the real emerald of the isle. Once described by Oscar Wilde as “wild mountainous country,” “in every way magnificent,” the desolate beauty of Connemara still, to this day, remains untainted by modern vulgarity and gives a splendid sense of isolation. Bleak and beautiful, the best way to see Connemara’s patchwork of lakes, mountains, white sandy beaches and boggy plains is of course, between the ears of a native horse.
Founded by Cathriona Goaley and Ciarán Mac Con Iomaire, Connemara Equestrian Escapes offers an intimate and leisurely tour of the spectacular Connemara countryside with the opportunity to experience local culture, produce and incredibly generous hospitality along the way.
