Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

One of Ireland’s oldest established Equestrian centres, spanning some 60 years. Founded in 1951 with the purchase of ‘Spinster’ who’s blood lines are still to the fore in the Monatrea horses.

We offer our guests the opportunity to ride with us through quiet country lanes, grassy boreens and open farm land. The beautiful beaches of Whiting Bay, Ardmore and Ferry Point are on our door step which makes for a lovely ride – tides permitting! Choose from a one to two hour hack or for the more experienced a day ride which is approximately four hours.

For those looking for tuition, why not avail of our professional instructors in our outdoor 60 x 20 m ménage. Tuition is available from the top levels of dressage, showjumping and cross country, to begineers sitting on a horse for the first time. There are different types of horses and ponies to ride at Monatrea from queit hackers to ex-european event horses to suit all types of riders both begineers and advanced.

The school is used by local Pony and Riding Clubs for instruction and is available for hire.
