Country Cottage Stables is a private boutique AIRE (Association of Irish Riding Establishment) equestrian establishment, conveniently located close to Dublin, just off the N11 in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow, nestled at the foot of the Great Sugar Loaf.

Country Cottage Stables specialises in providing individual and small group horse riding lessons and trekking, for novice to advanced riders. Whether you are a seasoned rider or just getting into the saddle, they have a riding programme for you.

The riding instructors are fully qualified and passionate about teaching. They take pride in looking after their clients in a fun, safe and encouraging environment. At the lessons, well-schooled horses are provided for all levels of horse riding, matched to your individual needs.

The trekking caters to riders of all levels. For the more experienced and ambitious riders who enjoy a trek, there are hacks. Riders also have the opportunity to have a canter along some of the trails, and to enjoy a more gentle and relaxed pace while taking in the scenic Wicklow countryside.

Situated in the heart of 'The Garden of Ireland', the stables also have access to the lands of the Powerscourt Estate Waterfall and Kilruddery House and Gardens.

Country Cottage Stables recently featured in The Telegraph's travel section when they welcomed Angela Scanlon and her father, Phelim, for a visit as they explored Ireland's Ancient East.

They offer tailored packages for riders of all levels, which include breakfasts, picnics and barbecues.

To ensure the upmost safety and enjoyment, all riders are required to complete the rider registration form and an assessment prior to any lesson or trek.
