Fodor's Review

An elegant Georgian inn dating from 1803, this historic building sits next to picture-perfect, grandly gracious Killyleagh Castle—reputedly the longest-inhabited castle in Ireland and arguably the country's prettiest. Formerly a bank, the inn happily retains original fittings, with Art Deco windows, mahogany doors, and a Wells Fargo door on the gent's toilet (formerly a strong room). The decor is tasteful while the lush and cozy rooms are individually styled; three have

king-size four-poster beds. The owner supplies tourist information and will give you a visitor map to discover the dreamy shores of Strangford Lough, whether on foot, by bike or car. The restaurant-bar next door—a separately run business—has a rustic feel to it with friendly snugs (cubicles) and Cajun and jazz music keeping things lively on Saturday afternoons and evenings.
