During your Ireland riding vacation, riders will be hosted at the historic Cloghan Castle. Built as an outpost fort in the 12th Century, Cloghan Castle was last inhabited by the Earl of Ulster in the 15th Century. Riders will have many options for their riding experience ranging from a calm trot over the peaceful forest trails and rolling hills of Sliabh Aughty to an invigorating gallop alongside the forested tracks of Loughrae Castle. Located close by, Dartfield Eventing Course offers a venue for riders interested in jumping cross country or lessons from a popular riding stable. For the experienced rider and hunter, fox hunting is available and a fun and exciting way to spend your days at Loughrae Castle! Cloghan Castle’s natural stone-topped walls, intricate winding stairway, elegant drawing room, and impressive stone fireplaces are sure to make this ride an unforgettable experience.
