AA Guest Accommodation of the Year (Northern Ireland) 2017–18

The Old Schoolhouse Inn

Rich text gaoty northern ireland aa bb 2017 044 2The Old Schoolhouse Inn

This family-run establishment is at the heart of some of the most scenic countryside in the UK, just a few minutes away from Strangford Lough. The area offers wonderful foraging opportunities for head chef Will Brown, who enjoys a high profile in Northern Ireland.

The bedrooms are all individually presented, and some have started to go through a refurbishment programme which has involved a changed of style, although other rooms, due to popular demand, are being refreshed but kept essentially as they are.

A hands-on approach from all the family in both kitchen and accommodation ensures hospitality is consistently good, and would be reason enough to visit without the food being such a strong attraction.
