What to Wear When Horseback Riding Through Dublin

START

Jet-setting across the seven seas, or simply swapping neighborhood spots, What To Wear When is your weekly column for shopping inspiration.

There’s a reason Ireland is dubbed “the land of the horse.” Not only have the animals played an essential part in maintaining the European island’s rolling farmland, but Ireland is one of the leading locales for equestrian breeding and racing, particularly when it comes to thoroughbreds. Naturally, this allows for plenty of opportunities for tourists and locals to explore scenic parts of Ireland via horseback—even Jackie O was a devoted fan of taking in the rolling hills and lush greenery on saddle, having first visited in 1950 when she was 21 years old. The former First Lady would later begin a famous love affair wth Ireland, even becoming pen pals for years with an Irish priest she met in Dublin.

While Ireland is a relatively small country, it’s rich in idyllic villages and historic cities all worth visiting. For travelers, the capital city of Dublin checks all the boxes. Bordered by mountains and surrounded by farmland, the populous city is separated by the famous River Liffey. (Once utilized by the Vikings, the iconic body of water is oft-referenced in literature and music, from James Joyce’s Ulysses to Radiohead’s “How to Disappear Completely.”) In addition to breathtaking medieval castles, thousands of traditional pubs, and a rich literary history baring the shadows of William Butler Yeates, Bernard Shaw, and Oscar Wilde, Dublin is the go-to city for all things St. Patrick’s Day-related. And with the national holiday falling on a Sunday this year, what better time to book a trip to the lively Irish capital? Below, shop CR‘s top picks while exploring the splendors of Dublin in March.
