COVID-19 Update: The Old Inn has reopened!


The Old Inn, Crawfordsburn is a four-star boutique hotel with 33 individually decorated bedrooms, five function rooms and an award-winning restaurant.

The Old Inn, Crawfordsburn is a family run, four silver star boutique hotel located in Co Down, Northern Ireland.

Located in the picturesque village of Crawfordsburn and on the doorstep of Crawfordsburn Country Park, this charming hotel is 15 minutes from Belfast city centre and just minutes from the seaside town of Bangor.

The historic property dates back to 1614 and has a thatched roof, seven open fires and 33 individually decorated bedrooms. All rooms are en suite and bursting with character, many with four poster beds and unique design features such as an organ bedhead salvaged from a cathedral in England.

The award-winning Lewis Restaurant has received AA Rosettes since 2000. Dining has been at the heart of the hotel for hundreds of years. Produce is locally sourced and creatively brought together with a modern European twist by skilled chefs. An open kitchen allows you to see the food being prepared to the highest standards.

The Parlour Bar is the most historic part of the Inn, sitting under a thatch roof in a building over 400 years old. Relax and unwind with a local malt whiskey or speciality gin or try the Narnia themed afternoon tea in front of a roaring open fire.

Five function rooms including the Verina Ballroom and the opulent Georgian Gallery make The Old Inn the perfect venue for weddings, conferences, meetings, private dining, family gatherings and celebrations.

Previous guests include writers CS Lewis, Swift, Tennyson, Dickens, as well as Peter the Great, Tsar of Russia and former US President, George Bush Snr.
