Connemara Trail

For over 30 years the Leahy family have enjoyed introducing visitors to this very special part of Ireland. Their friendly care ensures that every rider goes home with special memories of a wonderful holiday. Willie Leahy was the first man to lead a vacation trail ride, anywhere in the world. Willie is the largest breeder of Connemara ponies in the world and is also the Field Master of the famous Galway Blazers Hunt.

Overnight accommodation is in either hotels or guest houses. All are chosen for their friendly atmosphere and fine facilities. Lunch is eaten on the trail, amongst the magnificent surrounding landscape.
Experienced or novice riders alike can enjoy this holiday. Riders spend four to six hours a day on well-mannered, surefooted Irish hunters and Connemara ponies.
The trail guides have an extensive knowledge of the history and nature of the area. Amongst the breathtaking scenery you will see deserted villages, ride along empty beaches, maybe even swim with your horse in the sea.

For those of you not wishing to ride a horse you are very welcome to accompany riding partners/kids.
