The Maypole Bar

High Street, Holywood, County Down, BT18 9AB
The exterior of The Maypole Bar


The Maypole bar nestled in the heart of Holywood, stands proudly beside the only maypole in Northern Ireland. The Maypole Bar provides a symbolic meaning for the people in Hollywood and a community spirit that's unparrael to anything else. 

The Maypole Bar builds on its roots and keeps a tradition perfectly pairing alongside the rustic, classy and traditional interior. Its a feel good bar and you know fine rightly upon entrance you will be given a big greeting and made to feel very welcome. 

No music, no mobile phones and no TV, how about that. Surely, all you need anyway is the best pint of Guiness and good craic wirh friends and locals. 

So, why not visit The Maypole Bar, embrace the rules and traditions and simply have a new experience and a great time.
