One Hour Trek Itinerary This trek takes riders up into the hills overlooking the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. You leave the Stables and follow an old country road through lush Irish farmland to a small hillside path that leads you up into the hills. At the top, there is a chance for more experienced riders to quicken the pace with a canter along the ridge while less experienced riders can enjoy the scenery and take advantage of an unmissable photo opportunity. The view is magnificent behind you, the Brandon Mountain Range, in front of you a patchwork of green fields and the sea beyond. From here you head back to the Stables by a hillside path overlooking the town of Dingle and the busy harbour beyond. This is a one hour long trek which departs daily at 11:00 & 2:30.
