The Jingle Bell Express

Make Christmas extra special this year with an outdoor activity in the clean fresh air of Carlow and Wicklow.  Don’t let the Covid-19 pandemic spoil Christmas for you and your family.

Get into the spirit of Christmas and treat your family to  a “Jingle Bell Express”  horse and carriage ride, complete with genuine American sleigh bells.  There is nothing more magical than trotting along listening to the clip clop of horses hooves accompanied by the sound of Christmas jingle bells.

 It will be a magical Christmas experience for the whole family.

Or it could be just a romantic trip for two!

Safety Measures
The health and safety of all concerned – people and horses  – is paramount to us and we are committed to keeping your family safe during the Covid-19  pandemic restrictions while on a “Jingle Bell Express” horse and carriage ride:

  •  It is an outdoor activity
  • Only one family permitted per trip – up to 4 people
  • Only 1 trip per day will be organised
  • The only person to interact with you will be the driver
  • All trips will be in daylight

While we will take every precaution to safeguard both guests and ourselves, ultimately guests participate at their own risk and are responsible for their own personal hygiene and safety.
