Bruckless scatters about 2km west of Dunkineely. You can saddle up at Deane's Equestrian Centre which offers five-minute pony rides for children (€5), lessons (from €19/16 per adult/child for 30 minutes) and treks (from €35/30 per adult/child for one hour). You'll need to book ahead.
The luxury, ivy-clad, Georgian B&B Bruckless House sprawls over 7 hectares of gardens sloping down to the shore. Fronted by a traditional cobbled farmyard, it's home to a stud farm for Connemara ponies. The interior is furnished with antique oriental influences.
