Countryside & Beach Horse Ride to Selerna Strand

What You'll Do

Explore the magnificent landscape of West Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way on horseback, on a stunning route that shows you some of the most beautiful spots thanks to the knowledge of your private local guide.

There is nothing quite like horse riding on the pristine beaches along Connemara’s wonderfully scenic Wild Atlantic Way coastline.

On this private experience, your guide will lead you out from the riding centre on horseback, through a picturesque fishing village toward Selerna Beach, a scenic, crescent-shaped stretch of sand that looks out toward Inishbofin Island to the west and the mouth of Cleggan Bay to the east.

Choose your own pace and walk, trot, or gallop across this quiet Wild Atlantic Way shoreline, admiring the large pre-historic burial monument which overlooks the beach.

Spend some time appreciating the ocean views and islands beyond, before returning along the back roads, drinking in the beautiful Irish countryside. Ride past lush green fields and appreciate the fauna and flora that make up this Irish landscape, with the imposing Twelve Bens mountain range as its backdrop.

The riding stables are Connemara’s premier beach trekking centre, and this trek is suitable for beginner to advanced riders. There will be a short assessment before leaving with up to 2 guides depending on the number in the group and the level of experience of each member.

Your Local Host:

Colin and Cathy

Moving to Ireland in 2009, we left the frenetic buzz of big city life behind us, hoping to create a different lifestyle in the countryside. Colin, who is an Irishman, already had the love of the west of Ireland imprinted in his heart, having spent all his childhood summers fishing the many rivers and loughs for its famous wild salmon and trout.

In search of our ‘place’ in this crazy world, we chose the wilds of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way to settle and see if it would measure up to our high expectations…and boy does it deliver on that, and much, much more!

Location Information
