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 run by Tom Doherty. With experience at the international level at both Showjumping and 3 Day Eventing, Tom is well qualified to manage the best yard in the area. Tom is an H.S.I Level 2 coach and previously served as one of Horse Sort Ireland’s High-Performance coaches.

Ongoing upgrades to the yard’s facilities mean that Farmhill is always improving the services it offers, and Farmhill now uses the online booking platform at hopoti.com for all Riding Lesson bookings (if it’s your first time then please phone for a chat before booking).

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 Boucher Rd.

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