Chapel Box: A warm welcome after the ceremony

One of the most popular packages available to couples who hire The Irish Horsebox Bar is the Chapel Box - hot teas, coffees and hot chocolates served right outside the door of the Church or ceremony. This way, wedding guests don’t bolt off after the vows, but rather stay and mingle while allowing the couple to take a breather and get those all-important photos ticked off their list. It’s also a wonderful way for friends and family to reunite with a warm cup of the good stuff after a long 18 months apart. Surprise your guests with delicious teas, coffees and hot chocolates when they walk outside, in the cooler months it makes for a lovely pick-me-up and in spring and summertime it is the perfect way for loved ones to catch up after so many months spent apart. Our speciality Nespresso machine delivers coffees in seconds, so there's no big queues, and we are happy to provide plant-based milks, tasty syrups, cream and marshmallows of course! We can also provide personalised coffee cups - a lovely talking point and very photo-friendly! Starting from €450. 


Bar Hire: A favour to remember

Many couples are booking the bar for their reception drinks and day two parties, as it’s the ideal way to provide a speciality open bar service for guests without that awkward bar tab or cut-off time behind a traditional venue or hotel bar. Conveniently, The Irish Horsebox Bar can provide all manner of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. From speciality cocktails, to gin & tonic receptions, to a full bar service from professionally trained bartenders, we are happy to provide you with bespoke packages to celebrate your special occasion in style. We can also operate a Dry Bar, whereby you stock the bar and our expert bartenders look after everything else – from glasses to ice! Dry Bar service from €600; Full Bar package from €1,200. 


Ask us about our Signature Cocktails package, or Prosecco Bar service, all of which can be customised to suit your guest numbers and venue perfectly. Not to mention those unique touches that make your experience even more memorable - from personalised coffee cups, to a 'pimp my prosecco' bar to let guests create their own Bellinis or mimosas! 

The Irish Horsebox Bar has recently come under new ownership, and owners Dillon and Klara are so excited to continue to help their wonderful customers celebrate their special days. With 15+ years of experience in the hospitality, drinks and wedding industries, we are passionate about delivering five-star service and creating magical moments that our clients and their guests will remember for a long time to come.

Get in touch today with the date and details of your special occasion, we’d be happy to create a bespoke package just for you!

We were so pleased with the professional service and delivery by The Irish HorseBox Bar. Our guests were delighted with the selection of teas, coffees and delicious hot chocolate along with a large selection of festive treats outside the Church. Everyone is still talking about it and it was such a wonderful addition to the day. We can highly recommend the team.

I made first contact with The Irish Horsebox Bar via Weddings Online On the 12th of August, as we were having a winter wedding and felt that a hot drink might brighten the spirits for the guests, and stave off the dreaded hunger for a few hours. Hadn't heard anything about the service but really liked the idea, so we took a chance and initiated contact. On the 13th of August, Tara from The Irish Horsebox Bar replied, confirming availability for our date and outlining the various packages they offered, what they included and their respective costs. This was a very welcome email, there was no ambiguity, it set out exactly what you got for your guests. The package I wanted didn't feature very prominently on the photos section, I asked for some and was supplied with same promptly. All as you would hope for. The next step was to complete and return the booking form. I struggled slightly with this, as I *think* it may have been an online form to complete. I actually printed out the form, filled in my relevant details in own, took a picture and sent it back as an attachment to confirm booking. This was followed by an EFT to their account with half of the agreed fee. They also ensure at this stage that there is power available (there is an option of a generator if not, apparently), and they also give a brief outline of how they operate, when they arrive etc. All very straightforward. They ask if they may take photos of the wedding party for promotional purposes also, which is a nice touch. An automatically generated email arrives at 2 weeks out to remind you that the balance needs to be paid. The day before the wedding, I received a call from the company, they would be passing my venue and wanted to see where was best position for the trailer regarding shelter, power access and ease of access for guests. We met at agreed time, and their input upon inspection helped pick the perfect spot. All systems go for the big day. With everything going on on the morning, it was lovely to see the trailer in all its glory readying for the post mass crowds when I arrived. It's a lovely trailer, visually very pleasing, so before it was even put to use I was delighted. I said my hellos in a lull of guests arriving, the 4 staff all busying themselves with all the necessary tasks to have it as they wanted. After the ceremony, we eventually made our way around for a selection of photos with our photographer at the trailer. They had a glass off bubbly for the bride and groom, and a great welcome. As a while had passed before we got to it, we were unsure how popular the trailer had proved to be as it was nearly just us by then. We chatted with the very friendly, professional staff and they assured us they had indeed been busy, with quite a run on hot chocolates on the day. We stayed and enjoyed the coffee, tea and chocolates for a good while, taking advantage of the chance to recharge the batteries while also getting some great pictures. As requested in the email conversation with the guys, their own photographer was on hand to take advantage also. It was a really nice time, relaxed and fun in the middle of the madness. We eventually moved along to our next photo setting, thanking the Irish Horsebox Bar. As promised, there was no sign of the presence of a mobile café after the event, the bins they provided were well enough used, but any stray cups, lids, sugar or sweet papers were cleaned before they set off for home. We continued to have a fantastic day and night and following day also, but we are still getting so much positive feedback from our guests about The Irish Horsebox Bar. Thankfully they loved it, the idea, the look, the service, the product supplied. It has been a great reflection on our day, and left a huge positive in the minds of our guests on a miserable day, weather wise. In fact I was speaking with our photographer today and he gave out the number of The Irish Horsebox Bar to 3 people just this week, solely on the back of their Facebook posts from our wedding. This is more a note of thanks than a review. The Irish Horsebox Bar are not going to need positive reviews to drum up business. They have the perfect product, delivered with the perfect service, from the perfect setting for your perfect day. Thanks for the coffee, the pictures and the memories.

From the first time we met Ben and his team they were very helpful and always so professional. They were always on hand to answer any questions we had and nothing was too big an ask for them. We availed of their dry bar for our marquee wedding as we found it to be most cost-effective. We provided them with prosecco, gin, glassware and condiments and they served the drinks to our guests in a very professional manner. They also provided teas, coffees and hot chocolate at our drinks reception. All our guests commented on how friendly and efficient they were. We would highly recommend the Irish Horsebox to anyone having a wedding or event and want to provide their guests with something a bit different.

We engaged the services of The horsebox bar team for a party at our home for our son’s communion. The bar provided wines, gins, beers, soft drinks, tea, coffees and hot chocolates, the package included all of the glassware, crockery and drinks, the staff were super friendly and extremely professional. It is fair to say the horsebox bar was a huge hit with all of our guests (young and old)! This beautiful bar is a lovely addition to any party.

Thanks so much for the kind words Aileen, we really appreciate your feedback. It was our pleasure to be part of your celebration.

A Gem of a Surprise! We hired The Irish Horsebox Bar for a birthday celebration we had at home last February. As it was a day time celebration with kids we asked Tara and her fantastic team to provide our guests with hot drinks. The served up Nespresso cappuccinos and Lattes and had a great selection of herbal teas. Each of our guests requests were catered for. The kids loved the hot chocolate and what really made their day was being able to pick their own toppings which were left out in little bowls for the kids to choose from. They also had a beautiful selection of donuts and cakes for people to nibble on. Everyone was able to sit around on the seats and hay bales that were covered in the cutest cushions. I really liked that fact that the horse box was the focal point around which all of our friends were able to relax while the kids played around. The staff never stopped smiling and were fast with their service. Everything was spotless. It really made our party!

Highly recommend these guys for any event! They really complimented the relaxed, rustic vibe we were going for and were the perfect addition in making our wedding day so special!! We went for the processo reception option, straight after our outdoor ceremony and it was a lovely opportunity for our guests to mingle, chat and start the celebrations! They really were a talking point among lots of our guests, and helped entertain our guests during the time we were getting some pictures taken and before our guests were seated in the marque. Great photo opportunity for the wedding album too! The Irish Horsebox Bar Hire definitely have that extra sparkle and are such a lovely professional team to work with, who worked quietly in the background and setup before and removal afterwards was done so efficiently!
Response from The Irish Horsebox Bar Hire
Thanks so much Sharyn and Dave. We thoroughly enjoyed being part of your wedding day.
