The Downshire Arms is a beautiful Georgian period property with an intimate lounge bar and restaurant serving food 12 till 9 daily.

There are six self catering apartments to the rear of the property with a private car park for guests making it an ideal venue for your special day.


Harry and Pauline O'Hare took over The Downshire Arms nine years ago and since then have worked tirelessly to build up an excellent reputation for great food and service in a relaxed family environment suitable for all ages and every occasion.


The premises has recently been refurbished to a very high standard, in keeping with the Georgian style of the property, from sash windows to leather sofas, white panelling to exposed beams in The Terrace Suite, making it an ideal and unique boutique location for your wedding reception, or any other family occasion.


The Downshire Arms is a period building with accentuated features fused with a traditional style of decorating with a contemporary colour palette to create a transitional look that is a timeless merge between old and new.
