“Lovely morning ride”


"We were lucky enough to find Blackwater Stables by booking through our hotel – Sheen Falls Lodge. They were delightful. They accommodated us with only 1 day’s notice, and were willing to take my daughter out on a private, two hour ride. My daughter has Western riding experience, but not English – nor did we know we would be riding during our vacation. Even though they don’t advertise providing equipment, they were able to outfit her with helmet and boots without a problem, and also gave a quick lesson to help her transition. The young girl from the stable (in her 20’s) took my daughter out and she was so sweet and patient (I’m so sorry I don’t remember her name!). The horses appeared to be very well cared for and were gentle and used to this style of riding. They rode through a beautiful wooded path with views of the ocean. On drive up the stable appears small and a little off-the-beaten-path – but do not let that bother you a bit. They are great. And it was a perfect launching place to go to Kissane sheep farm or see the Ring of Kerry. We would definitely visit again."

“Nice trek in a nice place”


"I went to Blackwater Stables during my first trip to the ring of Kerry, in fact it was also my first time ever riding a horse! Had a really enjoyable day and I learned a lot from the few hours I spent there. It was very well instructed and excellent advice was given"

Pauline, Athboy


"So friendly with great attention to detail. Everyone catered for with the most gorgeous of horses and really lovely staff. My nephews and grandson were nervous at the beginning but really really enjoyed it. Lovely countryside too - so all in all, it was great."

Graham, Limerick


"My husband, my daughter and I spent a lovely afternoon out horse riding. It was the first time any of us had been on a horse but we really enjoyed it due to the brilliant girls that walked along beside us. All the helpers and the owners are really nice, very friendly and chatty. Our daughter who's a teenager and therefore not that easy to please loved every minute. Would really recommend this as a fun way to spend some family time."

Sara Reilly, Christmas


"I brought the family here as the children adore horses and we had a great day out. The children rode pony's, fed the horses and learned a lot about the animals. My youngest also seemed to play with the pet dog there as much as the horses! Overall a great day out and highly reccomended."
