Ownies Bar & Walter’s Place
“Soft is the grass and sure, my bed is free, oh but to be back in Carrickfergus, to strike that lonely road, down by the sea.” Traditional Irish Song.
Everyone is welcome at the impressive Ownies Bar: established in 1846, it is one of the oldest pubs in Antrim, in the lively town of Carrickfergus, and you can’t help but be warmed by its charm and character, which entreats you to unwind, and enjoy the glorious ambiance of open fires, and oak beams. A superb team of chefs prepare fresh, locally sourced ingredients, and create fabulous tasting food, offering a wide range of traditional and modern dishes within a chilled and relaxing atmosphere. If you fancy staying a night or two: Walter’s Place is right next door, making it extremely convenient for guests, especially having sampled the wide and delicious choice of wines, spirits and beers at Ownies. Walters Place is a gorgeous little boutique hotel that faces Belfast Lough.
Children can play in the adventure playground,enjoy the watery fun of the splash pads, enjoy a ride on the electric car track or climb aboard the Pickie Puffer for a narrow-gauge railway journey around the colourful landscape.
