Residential Riding Holidays

Castle Gardens welcomes guests for an extended horse riding holiday.  Enjoy meals and lodging in Castle Gardens and horse riding lessons at Cahir Equestrian Centre up the road.  Continuing the family tradition of hosting riding holidays for over 20 years, we welcome horse-loving children, teens, ad adults to experience a wide variety of horse riding activities.



We have had many overseas and Irish students return year after year and bring new friends with them—a testament to their experience.

More than just a holiday, guests will leave the experience with improved riding skills, greater horse knowledge, and new, like-minded friends. Overseas students will also greatly improve their English. 

Horses at rest.
