Vintage Horse Box Bar


After you say I do why not  spend time in the woods or gather on the terrace for drinks, games and photos. Our garden games paired with our Happy Mare Vintage Horse Box Bar make a great start for any wedding party.  Our vintage horse box trailer was recused and lovingly restored to add the wow factor to our couples wedding days.  This unique, contemporary and quirky bar is the perfect addition to any wedding day and we will work closely with you to decide how best to utilise it for your day.





If you're looking for a  brilliant way to dazzle your guests on your wedding day the first dance is the perfect opportunity. Create a gorgeously sparkly, romantic and memorable first dance by inviting your guests to join you under our fairy lit gazebo. Imagine your guests swaying under the string lights, wrapped in blankets and waving a touch of sparkle. Let our planners advise and assist you on creating this super romantic first dance. It is a truly magical experience with our roaring firepits and enchanting gardens!




Sometimes a wedding day is just not long enough to truly enjoy everyone's company and celebrate your love story. You may be interested in sharing a few drinks and finger foods with your guests the night before the big day for a pre-wedding catch up, or maybe hosting a barbecue the next day to hear all the stories your guests have to tell! Our Bench Bar is the perfect spot for a relaxed pre or post wedding celebration, we have you covered for an unforgettable weekend in Westport. Let your guests enjoy a relaxing day in our swimming pool, or perhaps the bravest among them will be climbing Croagh Patrick - it will make for a perfect holiday in Mayo!
