Incredible in every way. Mary at Oak Lodge was fantastic, the food was perfect. (Guides?) Brilliant and helpful, I learnt a lot. (enjoyed) Jumping things I would never normally dream of doing.

Incredibly fun, so great for my riding confidence & provided my son and friend with a lot of really challenging and thrilling cross country. Exceptional horses & the staff were wonderful.

Amazing and an experience I am so glad I treated myself to. The horses, the staff and the grounds were an eventers quintessential Irish cross country holiday. I loved all the horses and every fence we jumped, but the water obstacles were my favorite!

Exceeded all of my expectations! Connie was absolutely terrific! Mary Lynch is a queen!

It exceeded my expectations in every way. I feel like I came back a new person and rider. I'll admit I was terrified going in and Holly did an amazing job ensuring that they would look after me and boy did they! I did more in the first morning riding than I had expected over the course of the entire trip. Oliver, his horses and his team were just beyond. He's an incredibly special human and I will forever treasure having been in his presence. It was transformative.

AMAZING! One of the best holidays I've ever been on. So much fun and definitely jumped much more and bigger fences than I imagined. Speckles was an absolutely gem and Zorrow, Dessie and Lee too. Mary at Oak Lodge is so accommodation, the best B&B host! She went above and beyond, what a diamond. Oliver is a great character and Connie was a fab instructor and great at setting the ground rules and foundation for a great time. Exceeded all expectations!

Love Flowerhill and Portumna. Oak Lodge is a perfect B&B, and Mary is an extraordinary host. Very happy with the horses. Found a favourite and got her several times. I liked the rides with Giulia very much. She nearly matched Oliver as a guide.

Brilliant! Great horses, exciting and fun riding, lovely accommodation. Oliver and his team and great and Mary at Oak Lodge is so welcoming and wonderful host. Favourite memory was riding fences with Jamieson on a glorious sunny day - big smile on my face.

It was all fantastic! For me it was a personal achievement that was such a boost for me. Loved it. Five Star accommodation at Oak Lodge and Mary is just so wonderful. Lovely horses and well matched to the riders. Tack all ok. All the staff at Flowerhill were so warm and friendly. It was so well put together - well done!

I have nothing but great things to say about my trip to Flowerhill and Ireland! Everything was fantastic and I hope to plan another trip there, maybe even next spring. I wish I lived closer so I could visit more often. The scenery was amazing, the horses and cross country jumping was excellent, and the guides were wonderful! It was an invaluable jumping experience for me and boosted my confidence for training my own horse. The BnB and the owners were extremely friendly and excellent too - nice location and comfortable accommodation, great breakfast too. Thank you, Natalie and Holly, for coordinating everything on last minute notice!
