Set on the Connemara coast four miles south of Clifden, Errislannan Manor is a stately old manor estate with gardens, woodlands, a trout lake and equestrian centre that breeds Connemara ponies and guides tours by horseback through the estate and into Connemara's moors and mountains.
Sheltered by a surrounding wood the Manor overlooks the trout lake and houses the Errislannan Manor Connemara pony stud and riding centre. Erisslannan Manor provides the rare opportunity for riding and trekking on the famous Connemara ponies. Since 1960 Errislannan has also bred Connemara ponies, using the same female bloodlines. Also on the Errislannan Estate is an impressive garden that has earned membership into the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland Irish gardens for charity scheme.
Pony trekking takes place each morning from Mon to Friday each morning and rates are charged by the hour. Generally 1-2 hours provides plenty of time in the saddle. Private treks can be arranged.
