We (myself and son 10, and daughter 9) went for a lovely ride through the woods around the grounds of Ashford Castle and then myself and 5 children (aged 8 to 12) went zip-wiring through the woods adjacent to the equestrian centre - the staff were brilliant: very friendly and helpful. The ponies and horses were great, well behaved and safe. A most lovely morning and the kids wanted to do it all over again!!

My family and I stayed nearby in Headford. Our two girls, ages 8 and 11, took beginning riding lessons here in the beautiful Ashford Castle grounds. Helen and Mary give great instructions and our girls came for several lessons and learned a ton. They give you a discount for multiple lessons. It's English saddle with safe horses and very attentive trainers. Lesson are both indoor and outdoor. A highlight of our trip to Ireland.

We had a great time Clay Pigeon shooting through Ashford Outdoors! Tom was a great instructor and this was a highlight of our trip to Ashford. Lots of fun, even in the rain!

I would like to pass on our thanks from all of the Moyne Villa U12 football team and coaches. We all really enjoyed our team building and activity session on Saturday thanks a lot for all your work. We’ll be in touch about going again in the spring. All the best and thanks again for a great experience.

David, Mary and the rest of the crew at the Ashford Adventure Center went above and beyond the call of duty on our family visit last August. They were extremely busy but found a way to squeeze all six of us in for the zip line and tree climbing activities. We couldn't get over how professional these guys were and how well kept the facilities were. They have some amazing horses I'd love to ride next time I go back. Overall, it's an absolute must on the Ashford castle or the Wild Atlantic Way itinerary.
