Two American style barns overlook a large floodlit arena and the farm's year round turnout paddocks stretch down to the beautiful River Dawn, which flows through the farm. Private riverside and woodland farm trails cut paths between fields and alongside historic landmarks.
In the revived mill yard is the Hen House, a refurbished space offering professional and recreational arts based therapies in a peaceful setting on the banks of the River Dawn.
If you'd like to bring your horse on holidays and enjoy quiet time together on the trails, we provide short stay livery at Cullenagh along with self catering accommodation at The Thatch cottage in the nearby seaside village of Annestown on the Copper Coast. Annestown is ten minutes by car from Cullenagh.
If you'd like to visit with your horse for a morning or afternoon to ride the cross country trails or would like to purchase a gift voucher, please complete the contact form or phone Evie at 083 8770992.

The Anne Valley forms part of the historic Copper Coast in County Waterford. A network of cliff side paths stretches between Annestown Beach and the neighbouring villages. This stunning part of the Copper Coast is an artist's haven.
The Copper Coast is convenient for beaches, mountains and coastline, character pubs, restaurants, castles, historic houses and gardens as well as horse racing, music and theatre.
Guests have full access to the art studio and riding/walking trails at Cullenagh.
The cottage is in high demand over the summer period, as is the newly furbished adjoining apartment, which is a new accommodation option, so early booking is essential. Please contact us directly to enquire or make a booking.
Please see below link to The Thatch.
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 an entire 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!
Milly at Cullenagh Stables
Long and short term livery is provided for at Cullenagh. With large stables, individual paddocks and tack-rooms, a flood lit arena and riverside and woodland cross country trails, there's much to explore at your leisure over an afternoon, a day or a week - all before putting your feet up at The Thatch, a cosy traditional cottage by the sea in the picturesque village of Annestown. Nearby is the famous Harney's pub, serving up delicious food as well as delivering up regular servings of traditional Irish music.
If you're interested in a day of painting or learning more about the benefits of art therapy, we can, with the help of a professional therapist, tailor a programme to facilitate your unique journey, be it a couple of hours dedicated to creating your own unique piece of art or a longer stretch dedicated to digging deeper into the paints and charcoal.
Dipping into the paintbox can be a fulfilling experience that explores individual stories and experiences in a natural setting. It can also provide for a relaxing couple of hours to learn more about different styles of painting or a time to revive your interest in creating your own unique piece of work.
You can try your hand at pastels and charcoal or take to the easel with acrylics and watercolours. We supply the equipment and, within a relaxed and supportive setting, invite you to find and explore your area of interest.
Self catering accommodation at The Thatch in Annestown is available year round at our traditional Irish cottage in this little seaside village. A stone's throw from the beach, this scenic part of the world is an artist's and sea lover's haven

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.
We'll be right back to you!
