The Glendalough House grounds offer some of the most beautiful scenery and spectacular views in the Garden of Ireland. To take advantage of these settings and to add to the sense of occasion that a trek at Glendalough House Equestrian affords, the Picnic Trek Experience has been put together to give riders time to relax and unwind in the idyllic surroundings whilst enjoying our ‘Brown Bag Lunch’ comprising a choice menu of sandwiches, water, fruit and a desert.


The Picnic Trek Experience can be booked at the same time as a trek or can be ordered at a later date, but needs a minimum of 24 hours prior notice to arrange and is supplementary to any trek.
