  • Help


    We would love to have you come for a few months to help out with the children and ponies. Ideally someone with a real love of animals and experience with horses. The idea will be to help us out with care of the horses and to help the older children develop their knowledge of horses, getting them involved in grooming, mucking out and riding. You will be able to rise too while staying with us.

    We are in a great area for touring Ireland as we are very connected to Dublin (only 45 minutes away). If you want to improve your English there is an excellent language school near us. We are based in Co Kildare which is a great location for horse lovers, with lots of racecourses near us and of course the Irish National Stud.
