Denvir’s of Downpatrick, which is located on English Street in the centre of the town, is the oldest Coaching Inn in Ireland to continually operate as such since being established in 1642.
There are 6 en-suite bedrooms in Denvir’s itself, with a further 9, including 2 two-bedroom self-catering apartments, located in a mews some 70 metres away on the same side of the street. In all some 44 people can be accommodated. It is a real authentic Irish premise both in terms of décor and the warm Irish welcome from staff and customers alike.
It is a place close to the heart of the locals. Denvir’s serves freshly cooked food all day, seven days a week using the best of local produce. A particular speciality is the seafood chowder. We have two function rooms which can be booked for private functions, there is live music every week-end with special performances from well known artistes on a regular basis, and there are a number of experiences which we run in collaboration with partners which can be arranged. These include – Traditional bread making on the open 17rth century hearth. An introduction to Irish Dancing with Lord of the Dance star, Josephine King. A GAA experience with All Ireland Football winners, DJ Kane and Ross Carr. A céilí experience with the Tumbling Paddy’s. An introduction to the Irish language and the Hedge School with local historian Joe Kearney. Traditional candle making with whiskey.
