You can pick up a horse and carriage from outside St Stephens Green opposite Grafton Street. The carriages queue up like taxis on a first come, first served basis and are available from approx. April to October (depending on the weather)
The tours can last as long or as little as you like, from a short carriage ride around St Stephens Green to a half hour tour of Georgian Dublin to a full hour City tour. You can also ask your Jarvey(driver) for alternative tours which can take you along the canals or around the old city. Take a ride around Fitzwilliam Square, visit St Patricks Cathedral and Dublin Castle or take a trip along the Grand Canal to Guinness, it’s entirely up to you.
The Jarveys are always happy to answer any questions you may have about Dublin, point out places of interest and give you a history lesson on the way.
Tours cost from €15 -€50 depending on the tour you would like to take.
St Stephens Green is 15-20 mintues walk from the Castle Hotel or a short ride on the No. 11 bus which departs from O'Connell St.
