Enjoy life as it should be with beautiful surroundings of an upspoilt countryside and idyllic lakes.

Drumcoura City has an Equestrian Centre specialising in Western Horse Riding.  It has the largest covered arena in the County, two outdoor arenas, horse riding trails, an archery range, an outdoor tennis court and a jetty for fishing on Drumcoura Lake.

There are beautiful timber frame houses for rent (a few for sale) at Drumcoura.  Many of the houses overlook the scenic Drumcoura Lake or Lough Awaddy.

If you have ever dreamed about riding an American Horse like the ones in the Western films, this is the place for you.    Even beginners will learn western riding with a few lessons.

We have qualified Riding Instructors at Drumcoura.  Ron Weisz (previous Chairman of the Irish Quarter Horse Association for 5 years) and Marlene Rutten both hold level 2 certification from the Western Equestrian Society in conjunction with Horse Sport Ireland.
