A Post to Post walking holiday is a green holiday designed for the active traveller who likes to explore on foot and take time to observe his or her surroundings. Trails are wide, hard packed gravel or pavement, characterised by gentle slopes, and your pony or donkey can carry all your belongings (soft bags only).
The donkey's steady pace brings you deep into the Slieve Aughty Mountains, passing bogs, forests and farms and stopping at picturesque lakes. OS maps accompany you and the local people are happy to share the history and legends of each area. None of the trails are more than 10 miles in length, although longer routes are possible if desired. We recommend a reasonable level of fitness and good sturdy hiking boots and rain gear for the Post to Post Walking Holiday.
Note: The Walking with a Pony or Donkey Holidays are subject to changes due to weather, desires of guests and other factors. Slieve Aughty Riding Centre makes every effort to meet the needs of all guests and animals in its care.
