About Joanne Orr Carriages

For the carriage you always dreamed of ...

We provide a professional service of the very highest standard, covering all of Ireland to meet your requirements. Based on a unique range of carriages, a choice of prize-winning horses and many years of experience, we have a proven commitment to excellence and making your day the best possible.

We have carefully chosen carriages from the best in Ireland, Britain and Europe, which combine style, spacious interiors, excellent visibility and good weather protection.

The carriages carry a choice of large ornate lamps, bouquets or garlands of flowers.
Gliding along in a luxurious carriage, with only the sounds of a matching pair of horses, is the most relaxing way for you to travel to your wedding, the most stunning way for you to be seen to arrive and the most romantic way for you to leave.

Make Your Journey in Elegant Style
Make magical memories on your special day with our magical horses and carriages. We are available for communions, weddings, proposals, birthday parties or a special trip around the Mournes.

Funeral Services
As well as weddings, communions and other special days, we are available for funerals. Our large hearse is very dignified, and will hold a large American-type casket. Both hearses complement our Grey Horses. Drapes and Plumes included, if required.

Teaching & Training
Would you like to try carriage driving? Well we are here to help, we offer lessons either as an intensive course or regular lessons can be planned on a weekly or longer basis.

The training is practical hands on one-to-one with a high proportion of each lesson spent driving we teach traditional coachman style rein handling. As well as individual lessons we also regularly work with small groups. Our carriage driving facility is fully approved for teaching by the British Driving Society, staffed by BDS qualified teaching staff and fully insured.

You may have no experience of horses at all or think your days of riding horses are over and simply want to try driving and take it from there. All our horses are very experienced.

Our Carriages

Fairy Tale Pumpkin
Our ‘fairy tale’ pumpkin carriage is probably the most spectacular style of wedding carriage ever built and we have a choice of two. One is a large, but elegant, fun carriage. It is in white, with silver fittings and heart motifs in the intricate coachwork, side steps and burgundy velour upholstery. It is exceptionally easy for brides having wide doorways, low steps, excellent headroom and two long curved seats in a spacious cabin. A transparent cover provides good weather protection. The second one has a gold crown on top, white leather seats and a CD player inside. This carriage also has a transparent cover.

Convertible Glass Landau
The glass landau is a flexible convertible carriage and is ideal if you like the idea of an open carriage without worrying about the weather. Normally driven open, the hood, windows and roof can be raised in a few minutes to make it totally enclosed. It is in ivory with gold lining and silver fittings or in black with black leather upholstery and silver fittings. Windows all around and two double seats.

Semi-State Princess
The ‘Princess' is a very dignified semi-state coach, of a type which would have been used at important civic and ceremonial occasions.

In ivory with intricate gold lined carvings and silver fittings, it has a large gold-braided hammer cloth, two pairs of lamps, full-height buttoned leather interior, two seats, large windows on all four sides (sliding windows in the doors) and a groom's platform to the rear.

Cinderella Town Coach
The ‘Cinderella’ town coach is an enclosed glass carriage and ideal for any day of the year.
In ivory and gold with brass fittings, windows all around, flower garlands along the roof, two double seats and the widest cabin and the most legroom of all our glass carriages.

Horse Drawn Funeral Service
We have been professionally doing weddings throughout Ireland and beyond for the last 20 years. We have now added 2 Horse Drawn Hearses to our extensive range of carriages and now offer this service. This impressive hearse is unique, being highly decorative in black and trimmed in silver, which complements our Irish Grey horses, with black funeral drapes and plumes. The coachman and attendant are in matching uniforms. The smaller hearse is just as impressive.
