Set in the 200 acres of glorious farm and parkland, Bel-Air is a family run manor house hotel and equestrian centre in beautiful Ashford, County Wicklow. Welcoming visitors to the house since 1937, Bel-Air offers a riding holiday with a difference in an area of beautiful scenery, with stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the wild Irish Sea.
Catering for the more experienced rider, their specialty is building the confidence and skill of the rider on their cross-country course, and they are also happy to offer riders flat-work, show jumping and hacking out through fields and forest. They take great care to ensure that the horse is well behaved and suitable for riders in terms of size and temperament.
They pride themselves on the quality of their facilities and of their excellent staff who do their very best to make sure visitor’s stay is a memorable and enjoyable one. The warmth and friendliness to be found at this Victorian manor house is truly refreshing and visitors will soon feel right at home.
If riders feel like a break from the saddle there’s a great hotel bar and restaurant, while the town of Ashford is just a mile away and has a variety of hostelries and atmospheric pubs.
