Island View Riding Stables is run by three generations 

THE STABLES are situated in the scenic North West of Ireland, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Donegal Bay. Originally from O'Connors Island the family settled in the present mainland homestead in the 1950s. In 1994 the horse breeding and riding stables were added to the cattle farm. Today there are over 50 horses and ponies that enjoy a life close to nature in the vast fields between Benbulben Mountain and the sea. The nearest beach is only a few minutes ride from the stables. You can enjoy a fresh canter, a leisurely stroll or a splash in the sea.
