A 300-year-old restored farmhouse is home to An Sibín’s riding centre. Here, experienced riders can take daily or hourly rides over tracks, forests or quiet roads, while there is training in basic riding skills and guided hacks through the scenic countryside for the beginner. Every field and ancient ruin has its own story, which your guide will happily recount. Afterwards, a traditional home-cooked dinner is served before an open turf fire. An Sibín’s eighday Galway Clare Burren Trail takes riders 140km overland from the shores of Lough Derg to the Atlantic seaboard near the cliffs of Moher through the heart of the Burren National Park.
