Horse and equestrian pursuits in Dublin

Three people standing beside a horse.
Imagine coming eye-to-eye with a fallow deer from horseback as you trot through the Phoenix Park in the morning sun.
In Dublin, you can gallop freely through the woods or take on acres of cross country trails high above the city.

This is a city where your kids can learn to ride atop a placid pony or perfect your seat with an instructor who has competed internationally.

From hacking and trekking to show jumping and guided equestrian walks, horse riding in Dublin offers unforgettable experiences. (And if horse riding is more of a spectator sport for you, the All-Ireland Polo Club at their Nine Acres grounds in the Phoenix Park welcomes visitors to watch their chukkas.)
