Crown Liquor Saloon

The Crown Liquor Saloon, also known as the Crown Bar, is an example of a Victorian gin palace, and is one of Northern Ireland's most renowned pubs. It is maintained by the National Trust, who describe it as having a "wonderful atmospheric setting, with period gas lighting and cosy snugs. Ornate interior of brightly coloured tiles, carvings and glass."


The inn is reputedly haunted by the ghosts of former customers in Victorian clothing.
