Horses on the beach

Horse riding on the beach, a popular ride run by the go!trekking! centre at Westport Woods Hotel

Horse riding around Westport


Westport offers a superb horse riding experience in the unspoilt countryside of the West of Ireland. Treks are tailored to the experience and pace of each rider. All centres offer a wide variety of Irish sport horses and Irish cobs for their well-mannered attitude and sure-footed pace.

The go!trekking! centre has an abundance of rides to choose from; exhilarating beach treks, splashing through the shallows of the Atlantic ocean, meandering treks through the heather-clad foothills of Croagh Patrick or perhaps fast paced woodland canters.

One of their most popular activities is beach riding. It’s a dream of so many horse riders to canter through shallow waves on a deserted beach and we’re happy to be able to make that dream come true. We’re lucky to have many beaches to choose from, some at the foot of Croagh Patrick, others (for longer treks) farther out into Clew Bay. Treks are available to suit beginners and more experienced riders.

The go!trekking! equestrian centre is owner run, by Michael Lennon and his hand-picked team of guides who will delight in sharing their knowledge of the area and folklore as you ride through this magical landscape. Join us for the best horse riding experience in the West!
