The West of Ireland has long been known for its rugged beauty and nowhere is this more evident than in Whitegate, County Clare, home of An Sibin Riding Centre. With a backdrop formed by the rolling hills of Slieve Aughty, this truly is a country idyll, perfect for getting away from it all.
Fresh country air and an unhurried way of life, a residential riding holiday is a back-to-nature experience like no other. Riders and their horses can wind their way down quiet country roads or take in the natural beauty of the world-famous Burren. With many miles of riding tracks and heather-covered bog land to explore, every day brings new adventures.
An Sibin is a 300-year-old lovingly restored farmhouse. What better way to relax and unwind after a day on horseback than with a traditional home-cooked dinner in front of an open turf fire?
The centre also offers a unique combination of horse riding and sightseeing – with an Irish Castle & Monastic ruin ride. This adventure combines guided rides through the rugged beauty of the Clare countryside with tours to impressive castles, beautiful monastic ruins and ancient Celtic tombs.
