Horse Drawn Carriage
Enjoy all the romance of the Adare Manor Estate from a Horse Drawn Carriage
When the 2nd Earl of Dunraven built Adare Manor in 1832 carriages were a familiar part of their everyday life. Today a carriage tour is still the best way to experience all the magic of the Adare Manor Estate the way it was meant to be seen.
Settle into our beautifully appointed carriage for a meandering 45 minute exploration of this enchanting 840 acre estate. The many gracious touches included this fully weatherproofed carriage ensure a relaxed and comfortable journey, from toasty Irish lambswool blankets to an elegant table with equipped wine coolers and cup holders. You can pre-order drinks with our team before setting off on your tour: perhaps a bottle of champagne or a warming Irish Coffee?
Take in the sweeping views of the lush Irish countryside, fascinating historic sites, and memorable points of interest along the tour route as your personal guide shares engaging tales of Adare’s long history: the Norman invasions of the 12th century, the rebellions and uprisings which shaped the land and its families, the establishment of the quaint village with its picturesque thatch cottages, and stories of life in the Manor, from the days of the Dunravens up to today. You will have plenty of opportunities to capture lasting memories of this extraordinary place as the carriage tour pauses for scenic photo stops at several charming locations on the way. As a perfect introduction to Adare Manor or as a fitting farewell at the end of your visit, a horse drawn carriage ride around the estate is a wonderful way to imprint the beauty of this place on your heart forever.
