We are an equestrian tourism destination based at Arnolds Hotel located along the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal, Ireland's most rugged coastline. We are AIRE APPROVED. Come horse riding with the McDaids! We have access to beautiful Atlantic beaches where you can ride for miles without interruption.

Please contact us for any more information on any of our variety of packages we offer, from half an hour on a horse to week long trails, staying in Arnolds Hotel, there is plenty of choice for the whole family, as seen on BBC 'Holiday'. Read through Testimonials and see what previous riders have thought of us.

We have a varied selection of horses to suit people with all levels of horse riding ability, from little Shetland ponies for the tiny tots to connemara ponies, quiet cobs, Irish hunters, all of which are sure footed when crossing the mountain paths and willing on the beaches.

If you would like to improve your riding during your time with us, you can get lessons with Niamh, our BHSAI to give you helpful and practical advice.

Booking is ESSENTIAL!

If you can't reach us on the phone numbers provided please try again as we're not always in the office, we could be out on the beach with clients or trying to catch a cheeky pony out in the field, they're not always co-operative when it comes to being caught 😉

If you haven't had the pleasure of riding our horses yet then you can get a sense of us before you even get here by checking out some of these links! Enjoy!
