Enjoy life as it should be with beautiful surroundings of an upspoilt countryside and idyllic lakes. While Drumcoura is stress free, it also offers activities to suit all family members.
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.
Drumcoura also has a fully licensed bar and family restaurant just as you would see out West in America. The DC Saloon has swinging doors and loads of pictures of Cowboys and Indians. There are timber frame houses for rent, many of which overlook Drumcoura Lake and Lough Awaddy.
If you have ever dreamed about riding an American Quarter Horse like the ones in the Western films, this is the place for you. It is like the Dude Ranches in the States. Our horses are well trained and even beginners will learn the ropes with a few lessons.
Our head Western Riding Instructor, Ron Weisz, holds a level 2 certification from the Western Equestrian Society in conjunction with Horse Sport Ireland and he is Chairman of The Irish Quarter Horse Association. Drumcoura is approved by the Association of Irish Riding Establishments and Failte Ireland tourism.
