Situated at the foot of Croagh Patrick, Croagh Patrick Stables also boasts Clew Bay on its doorstep. Croagh Patrick Stables has some of the most spectacular scenic views in Ireland. The stables are situated in the village of Murrisk, 9km from Westport in Co. Mayo. Riders are spoiled for choice with options of a hack to the beach, lessons in the arena, or schooling over our set of jumps in the arena. Croagh Patrick Stables are AIRE Approved with BHS-qualified instructors. The riding school is open 10 am until 7 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and 10 am until 5 pm on Saturdays. We offer horse riding lessons for children and adults, from beginners to advanced, private, and group lessons. We offer novice riders who are visiting the area a beach experience which includes a warm-up in the arena and hack to Bertra strand and a walk/trot on the beach with plenty of photo opportunities. Trekking is seasonal and only offered to experienced riders. Children’s horse riding camps are run during all term holidays. The camps include a riding lesson and stable management class. There are novice and intermediate camps, where the children learn in a fun, safe, horse environment. We also hold birthday parties. Croagh Patrick Stables has a purpose-built outdoor sand arena and a full set of jumps. The stables offer half board livery with full use of outdoor and indoor arena, access to the beach, year-round grazing, all weather turn out, large stables, tack room, and haylage each morning. Croagh Patrick Stables are very proud of the high standard of horses and ponies we have in the riding school. We pride ourselves on the service we provide and the quality of lessons. The welfare of both horse and rider is paramount and we believe that safety and structure is the key to a good riding school. Whether you are looking for lessons on a regular basis or a holiday experience Croagh Patrick Stables has so much to offer a horse enthusiast.
