Horseriding in Killarney
On the other side of town, Killarney Riding Stables, offer trailing riding in the Knockreer area of Killarney National Park, with 1, 2 and 3 hour treks available. The treks bring you up to a high point close to Cnoc an Rí in Knockreer from where you can take in the impressive views of Loch Léin, Killarney’s Lower Lake. From here you can enjoy the full panorama of the Kerry mountains from the Paps to the east, right across to the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks to the west. Riding hats and boots can be supplied by the stable.
“My family and I enjoyed our stay at Friar’s Glen. We had a Family room with a double and two single beds. Our room was lovely, spotless, and had plenty of storage. It was my boys’ (10 & 12) first B&B experience, and they loved the warm Irish welcome they received from Mary and folklore she shared about the area. The breakfasts did not disappoint, either! Friar’s Glen made a good base for exploring County Kerry, where there is so much to see and do.”
