Equestrian Centre & Facilities

The estate boasts a good range of equestrian facilities which include stabling for 10 horses, a new sand arena/schooling ground and an excellent cross country course.   Hunting can be arranged upon request with the Galway Blazers and the North Clare hunt.

The Cross country course on this estate was design by Tommy Brennan who is internationally renowned for designing the cross country course for Chinese in the 2006 Olympics. The trial is c.2.5 miles long and includes 34 jumps with 56 options - natural fences designed to challenge all, from the inexperienced to professional riders. The course winds its way through woodlands, part of the lake itself, the arboretum and across meadow and pasture allowing riders and spectators to really appreciate the beauty and diversity of the estate.


Regular schooling courses are available with international riders Maxie Scully & Aidan O'Connell tutoring. Both Maxie & Aidan are accredited equestrian tutors, and former professional international show jumpers.

Exclusive tuition can be arranged for groups of up to 10 - booking must be arranged in advance and residential accommodation is available.


Lough Cutra, the estates private 1000 acre lake, has not suffered the same fate as many other lakes in the region – and has not been over fished. Large trout, pike perch and carp are some of the fish that will delight the experienced angler.  Even the most inexperienced angler is going to catch something! There are a couple of boats which are available for use by castle guests and fishing from the shore can also be very successful. Should anglers get tired of the fishing they can go and explore any of the dozen or so islands dotted around the lake.
