Hop Island Equestrian Centre
With AIRE and Bord Failte approval, Hop Island Equestrian Centre offers an unparalleled experience. All ages and levels are welcome to enjoy the facilities, which include floodlit indoor and outdoor arenas. Qualified instruction is available to help you improve your show jumping or dressage skills. For the bold and the brave, there's a very challenging cross-country course or, if you prefer, leisurely beach rides are also possible.
I go to Hop Island every week and have done for the last 5 or so years and it really is such a great place. Liam and Mary are really interested and involved in what they do and make you feel really welcome. The beachrides are great fun and the showjumping leagues they have in the winter are great experience for everyone. I'd recommend anyone with an interest in horses to go down and have a look
I had to work in Cork for the Summer period and rode once or twice a week in Hop Island. I had absolutely no complaints. It was great fun and Liam and Mary are lovely people. Very memorable experiences on the beach, especially when they accomodated five of my friends who also loved the experience.
