The Stables @ Swainstown

Happy Horses, brilliant facilities and beautiful grounds greet you when you arrive at this lovely livery yard in Swainstown, Kilmessan.  The yard is kept in pristine condition and the stables are home to some very content horses.  The livery owners are all lovely and there is a happy vibe on the yard.  Hacking out on the gorgeous, seemingly endless grounds makes you feel completely at ease, and helps you get away from it all.

The yard runs like  clockwork and there is great attention to detail, the horses are treated like they are their own.   The resident coaches are amazing  and really get the best out of you and your horse in lessons.

I can’t recommend the stables at Swainstown highly enough.  If your priorities for a yard are your horses well being and you want a happy, friendly and professional but easy going yard to keep them in, Swainstown is the place to be!  

Snap and Mini, the dogs, are also great yard managers and keep the yard and horses safe and sound 24/7!

The Stables @ Swainstown is the perfect place to keep your horses if, like me, you want them to be healthy, happy and content.

Having experienced many types of livery, this is the only yard I've been in, that ensures the horses get the same level of care and attention that they get from their owners!

My horse has been in the yard  since last summer. Only a youngster, he needed schooling work, and proper handling.

The level of care he receives in the yard is top class. He has never learned to be afraid of anything through poor handling, including Clipping/ Shoeing/ Boxing.

His coat and condition have been excellent, and he gets turned out or exercised whenever I can't make it to the yard.

Great facilities and top class tuition are the icing on the cake!

I've just moved the kids pony there too!

The Stables @ Swainstown is a truly wonderful place and the care and attention given to Louis, my horse,  has been absolutely second to none from the day he arrived.

The facilities are fabulous - the spotless American barn, the all weather arena, 400 peaceful acres in the heart of Meath to hack through - all topped off by a warm welcome and professional management.

The jumping lessons are legendary and great fun and all the  schooling and lunge lessons have ensured that I have a very happy, fit and content horse - and a very happy and content owner!

Their ability to keep a grey horse sparkling clean in all weathers still amazes me! Each horse is treated as their own and the level of attention and love given is second to none.

Having originally planned to put Louis in livery for 4 weeks to get him fit, we are still here 9 months later - and loving every minute !


Since I have begun riding under conan’s tuition I have become a much better rider. Riding at Swainstown is much more than just becoming a better rider it brings the fun back into competing. Every lesson with Conan presents new challenges ,which are always overcome.

Conan never confuses me with technical jargon when I am riding and will always explain  terms he uses in plain language.

I love riding in Conans and would recommend it to anyone who is serious about competiting.
