On your high horse

The Irish Times Magazine - - INSIDE -

Two of my great loves, cof­fee and horses, com­bine in Sean Byrne’s bril­liant High Horse Café. Based in a horse­box, Byrne’s mobile barista bar, which he runs with his part­ner Julie- Ann Hamilton, can be hired for your own pri­vate par­ties, fes­ti­vals or events.

It’s a real fam­ily af­fair, Byrne and his fa­ther found an old horse­box, and pretty much tore it apart, putting it back to­gether as a fully op­er­a­tional cof­fee dock. His mum picked out the pretty pale blue colour, and the whole fam­ily got stuck into the re­build.

Kilkenny- based Byrne had wanted to set up on his own, but prop­erty prices seemed to put the dream out of reach, un­til he hit on the horse­box idea, adding his own love of vin­tage style to the look. They got on the road just six months ago, and it’s prov­ing hugely pop­u­lar. The cof­fee’s great too. Rates start at ¤ 350, de­pend­ing on travel dis­tance and num­ber of guests. The High Horse Café also dou­bles up as a pros­ecco or gin bar, should you re­quire. Another great love . . . www. high­horseevents. ie / 089 413 2894
