Two American style barns overlook a large floodlit arena and the farm's year round turnout paddocks stretch down to the majestic River Dawn. Riverside and woodland farm trails fringe Cullenagh's historic landmarks.
In the mill yard is the Old Hen House, a refurbished recreational space. It is here that the social farming day begins and it is from here that the day's activities are planned. Social farming projects encompass all aspects of farm life, from care of the horses and ponies to the cutting of hay and silage to fishing and foraging.
Participants come from all walks of life and bring a vast range of life experiences with them. With nature as a guide, much is learned and shared, while lasting friendships are made.
Our experiences as a social farm have been wide ranging and also mutually beneficial. Some of our participants seek the peace and quiet that a farm environment provides due to different life challenges, while others are eager to learn more skills and to work with animals.

We are open for bookings from mid June until mid September.
Please contact us ahead of reserving so that we can ensure that each horse and rider is catered for according to interests and abilities.
The working farm and stables at Cullenagh developed around a milling industry dating back to the 1600's which, through the ages, played a significant role in the region's history.
The historic landmarks on the farm have been integrated into cross country woodland and riverside trails.
Steam trains once had a stopping point on the farm's Old Quarry Trail, which follows the faintly visible remains of an earlier steel, mill whose arches and tunnel are now neatly woven into the surrounding farmland. The railway line once linked Fishguard Port to Lismore, County Waterford. Riding trails now follow paths over and under its old stone bridges.
The carefully preserved remains of Fairbrook Mill fringe part of today's equestrian trail which follows paths alongside the historic Mill Street Houses, the old chimney, the mills' former weirs and mill races as well as through belts of arable land, woodland and alongside the ancient spa at Gortnaclode.
Day visitors can enjoy the trails with their horse over a morning, an afternoon or a full day. If you would like to purchase a gift voucher, please complete the contact form or phone Evie at 083 8770992
Hoping all of our farm visitors and customers are enjoying the arrival of spring!

My daughter and I have frequently been to Cullenagh Stables. Each time has been a delight. The facilities are excellent and you can always be sure of a warm welcome. We've been along the track, the scenery is beautiful. So much nature and fresh air, yet so close to the city. A real gem!

The owners of Cullenagh Stables are a passionate and caring team. I've had the great opportunity to watch them provide visitors with authentic concern and hospitality. The stunning location and grounds are in top-notch condition, contributing to a wonderful experience but the staff make the utmost difference.
