This has to be the most stunning way to see Wicklow

Alan Fisher

This has to be the most stunning way to see Wicklow.

Wicklow is such a beautiful county with loads to do.

You can take on one of the many walks like the Spinc in Glendalough, visit the beach in Brittas Bay or try some delicious food in the gorgeous surrounds of Powerscourt house.

There is honestly so much to do and so many ways to see it but have you ever considered taking on a horse ride in the hills and finishing off with a picnic?

It’s so cool.

Country Cottage Stables in Enniskerry offers this unique experience.

They have direct access to the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains that then lead on to stunning views of Ireland’s highest waterfall in the Powerscourt Estate, as well Kilruddery Estate, with over 750 acres to explore on horseback.

Regardless of your experience, the guys will cater for you as you see Wicklow.

If you are more experienced you will have the opportunity to cantar along but if not, you can enjoy a more relaxed pace while still enjoying the beautiful sights.

On top of that, half-day rides with a picnic are also available.

Prices start from €50 which is pretty decent for a great day out.
