The Best Way To Get Around

Equestrian facilities are available to guests just 15 minutes drive from Adare Manor. The brilliant team at the Clonshire Equestrian Centre provide the following lessons and cross-country rides:


Arena lessons combine flat work and jumping. This is the ideal way to get acquainted with the Irish Sport horse and their English saddles. Riders must be novice level and above for this lesson.


Cross-country instructional rides contain natural-style obstacles to suit various levels. Unfortunately, in the interest of safety, we are not able to allow visitors out on the cross-country course until they have first had an area lesson with us.


Beginner’s arena lessons are perfect for first-timers or those who may have only ridden once or twice before or just never in an English saddle.


Gentle hack is a leisurely trek over roads and tracks on a nearby private estate. To join this group visitors need to be able to steer, stop and move on their mounts. (Please note that this is not available on weekends and public holidays).



There is a selection of helmets and boots available for guest use and all riding is done in English saddles on sports horses and ponies. Children 8 years of age and over are absolutely welcome but will need to ride alongside an instructor.
