About Farmhill Stables

Farmhill is the longest-serving family run stables in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland.  Farmhill Stables sits at the bottom of the Knockagh Hill in the beautiful countryside just outside the ancient town of Carrickfergus.

Farmhill is a family business run by husband and wife team of Tom and Anita Doherty, and increasingly by their son, Bryn! With experience at international level at both Showjumping and 3 Day Eventing, they are well qualified to manage the best yard in the area. Tom is an H.S.I Level 2 coach and is one of Horse Sort Ireland’s High Performance coaches, while Anita is a Chartered Physiotherapist who combines working as a physio with coaching many of the livery clients and also does a lot of coaching with local Pony Clubs.

An ongoing upgrade to the yard’s facilities means that Farmhill is always improving the services it offers, and having 2 very popular Riding Instructors in Andrew Ross and Katie McDonnell means the Riding School is growing quickly.

Farmhill is located at the bottom of the Carrick end of the Knockagh Road, almost opposite Woodburn Primary School. We are 1.5 miles from the Carrickfergus Tesco, and about 20 minutes from the Boucher Rd.

Come and see for yourself – you won’t be disappointed!
