Castle Leslie Estate - Ireland

Riding Programme

5 star rating   7 July 2019

Lindsey (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Jump all the things! | Truly and equestrian paradise! Castle Leslie did not disappoint. We were hoping for a luxury "adult riding camp" feel and it was exactly that. Beautiful grounds, superb accomodations and of course, fantastic horses and riding. We expected the riding to be excellent (so many acres and so many interesting cross country fences), but the icing on the cake was the friendliness, expertise and high level instruction given by the equestrian facility staff. They pushed us to try more, corrected bad habits, all while making sure every minute was fun! Absolutely terrific staff that takes excellent care of their rider and all the wonderful horses at the estate.

Food was nice. Our last morning the breakfast buffet was expanded and much better than previous morning. It would be nice for the dinner menu to change at Connor's.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

Our only feedback is that the arranged transportation seemed expensive. Perhaps giving more affordable options prior to the trip.
[ITS comment: Unfortunately we aren’t in control of the transfer prices that Castle Leslie set but we are so pleased that you enjoyed the riding. It’s great to hear that you were able to benefit from the style of teaching and of course that you loved the horses :-)]

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

None it was easy and responsive

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Fantastic trip - we are already planning our next one!
