ODonnell Homestay Equestrian Camp Ireland

County : Co.Tipperary

About Us

Our Homestay Equestrian Camps provide an outstanding horseback riding experience through unspoiled mountain pastures, rich with landscapes, legends and hidden Irish history. We have teamed up with a centre whose knowledgeable instructors will guide you through this stunningly beautiful countryside. The facilities are annually inspected and approved by the Association of Irish Riding Establishments (AIRE).

Included is riding instruction, treks, and mounted games. Children also spend time learning about ponies, how to groom, feed, lead, tack up and care for them. Children are trained particularly in the importance of body language and positive reinforcement in the handling of horses and ponies. Instruction is also given on the parts of the saddle and bridle, and on how to clean them. Each camp ends with a gymkhana on the final day, with competitions suitable for all levels of participant and the chance to win various prizes.

The camps are suitable for children, boys and girls, aged 5– 18 of all levels of ability, from lead-rein novices to competent jumpers. Equestrian Camps run Monday to Friday from 9.30am-5.30pm.

Week 2 tours include trips to the famous Rock of Cashel, Glen of Aherlow, Cycling Greenway etc.

The Equestrian camp is 9km or 15 minute drive from our house. We will drop and collect you and will also provide a packed lunch to eat at the camp. All dietary requirements catered for.

The equestrian camps are on set dates for a week in July but guests are welcome to come and stay for a week or more before or after the camp. Day trips, when not at equestrian camp, depend on the weather and what's happening in an area at the time. If there's a festival on somewhere we might head there and visit some sites nearby. As our own kids would also be coming we like to make the most of it and leave early in the day with a packed lunch for a picnic. There's loads to see and do in the area and we are in a central location ideal for visiting other parts of the country.
