The Old Inn

Places to Stay | Co. Down, Northern Ireland.



Step through the doors of The Old Inn to experience nearly 400 years of history.

The Old Inn is a famous hotel in Co Down and stands on one of Ireland’s most ancient highways. Centuries of history sit snugly under the thatched roof of this delightful, historic Coaching Inn, which has been providing a place to stay in Co Down for generations.

Each of the 32 bedrooms are completely individual in character and are named instead of numbered. Many are grand, charming rooms with wood panelling and four-poster beds hung with sumptuous fabrics.

The Old Inn is a favourite place to eat in Co Down as dining there is always a pleasure and the recently renovated & highly acclaimed Lewis Restaurant is noted throughout the country for its superb cuisine and excellent wine list combining a bistro atmosphere with fine dining food.

Located just ten minutes drive from Belfast, The Old Inn exists as a fairytale hotel with an emphasis on personal service and luxury.

As one of Ireland’s oldest hostelries, The Old Inn has played host to many notable visitors, both famous and infamous. Peter the Great – Tsar of Russia, highwayman Dick Turpin and former US President George Bush are among the many travellers who have lodged and dined under its thatched roof.

  1. Good Evening

    I have a double room booked for Saturday night 3rd May for my husband’s fifty birthday.
    Can you advise is there any entertainment in the hotel during our stay?
    We are very much looking forward to our stay after reading the excellent reviews on trip advisor and dining in your restaurant for dinner and breakfast.
    We are just round the lough so not to far to travel from Carrickfergus.
    Look forward to seeing you all soon.

    Best Regards

      We’re not affiliated with The Old Inn. We’re bloggers and photographers who happened to take 360° photos there. Your best bet is to contact the hotel directly. You will find their contact details on this page (on the side bar to the right).

      Have a great stay. It’s a lovely place.

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
