Take a holiday with your family, friends, and your horse!

Slieve Aughty Centre is one of the few places in Ireland offering quality accommodation for both you and your horse. When you go on a riding holiday, you want to have a good time and improve your horsemanship. Bringing your horse with you on holiday adds the benefit of improving your horse!
Let our experienced guides show you the beauty of Kylebrack Forest, the Slieve Aughty Mountains and the rural countryside at a pace that suits you and your horse. Cross country jumping can be added into any day if desired, and you are free to school in the sand arena as much as you like in your free time, just arrange with the yard manager on the day.
For your horse, the forest tracks provide a great off-road training ground for navigating mud, stones, ditches and rivers. At the same time, many of the paths are wide gravel or paved roads, and you’ll always have a leader to give you and your horse confidence, we also have a round pen for ground work.
When you’re not riding, relax and dine in The Three Towers Eco House and Organic Kitchen, where our chef cooks up savoury meals using ingredients from our garden. Vegetarians are welcome and will find plenty of things to choose from.
Want to do some sightseeing while you’re here? We’re happy to help you book a tour of Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher, and other attractions, or we can direct you to Galway for a day of shopping by the sea.
In the evening, visit one of the local pubs for great atmosphere and, if you’re lucky, a traditional music session, and sleep peacefully in one of our comfortable Three Towers rooms.
Your horse will have a holiday to write home about as well! He’ll enjoy exploring new areas with other horses, and his stable offers a clean, deep bed and plenty of space to stretch out and doze after all the hard work. While you’re out riding, we’ll clean the stables. We provide water and all stables have windows for good ventilation. Feel free to use the wash area and tack room, and there’s plenty of room for horse boxes and small lorries to park and turn around easily.


Glamping Options:

The Glamping cabin, for something really different, stay in our cute and cosy Glamping Cabin. The cabin comfortably sleeps up to 3 in a double loft room and fold out sofa bed and has a wet bath with hot shower. The Playground Hut is a more modest glamping option. This cute little timber hut has one room with a small double bed and the option of a single bed above. There is electricity and a wood burning stove. Showers, toilets and kitchen are shared facilities just a step away from the hut.
The Wagon is a very unique listing we just added in 2021, an antique horse drawn wagon has been fully refurbished and renovated to contain 2 bunk beds and even a small stove plus there is electrical outlets. Access to the Showers, toilets and kitchen are a step outside of the garden where the wagon is situated. Nestled between apple trees, with its own private entrance and outdoor seating and fire pit. All glamping includes bed linens and towels and access to the Enchanted Forest, playground, craft room and other common areas.
The Three Towers at Slieve Aughty: Large bedrooms in The Three Towers Eco House are uniquely and individually designed to make you feel at home and comfortable.

Seven of the nine rooms have access to shared balconies with stunning views of the forest, gardens and fields.In keeping with our Eco ethos and policies, you will not find a television in your room and wifi access is only available in public areas. We believe the view from your window provides better entertainment!We have a coffee/tea station in the bar which all guests are welcome to use throughout the day as we do not provide these facilities in the rooms. Daily housekeeping services are included in the room rate; in keeping with our environmentally friendly ethos we give you the option to skip a day.
