Golf is one of the major attractions at the O'Hara family's lively family-run country inn, both on-site and in the locality, but it’s a pleasant and hospitable place for anyone to stay.
Golfers and non-golfers alike will soon find friends in the convivial bar, where food is served from noon to 10 pm every day - and outside in a pleasant barbecue area too, in fine weather.
Accommodation is not especially luxurious, but very comfortable, in good-sized en-suite rooms which are all on the ground floor, arranged around the main courtyard, and have plenty of space for golfing gear.
Newer cottage suites overlooking the golf course (just 100 yards from the main building) were the first of this standard to be completed in Northern Ireland. As well as bar food, there’s an evening restaurant up a steep staircase (with chair lift for the less able), overlooking the garden end of the golf course.
A dedicated kitchen team produces good home cooking with local fresh ingredients for daytime food (soups, freshly made sandwiches and open sandwiches, baked potatoes, pasta) and evening meals like hot garlic Aghadowey mushrooms or ribeye steak with a Bushmills whiskey sauce.
