Established in 1846 Ownies Bar and Bistro is one of the oldest pubs in Antrim it has been tastefully restored after a recent fire. The open fires and oak beams ooze with character, this is a real bar where you feel welcome and cared for. All our food is freshly prepared daily by a superb team of chefs who simply cook great tasting food, you can also try our creamy Guinness or a shot of Poitin known as moonshine in Ireland.
