C.S. Lewis Bed & Breakfast

With a storied past dating back to the 17th century, The Old Inn has hosted dignitaries and celebrities from around the world, each enchanted by its timeless charm and impeccable service. The hotel is labelled as one of Northern Ireland's most historic hotels due in part to its links with author and 20th Century Literary icon C.S. Lewis who was a frequent visitor to The Old Inn and even honeymooned here with his wife Joy in 1958! Renowned for its rich history and famous for a cosy atmosphere with warm hospitality, step back in time and savour the grandeur of a bygone era.

Indulge in an enchanting journey through literary history with our exclusive 'Journey to Narnia' bed & breakfast package that beckons you to experience a world of refined elegance and intellectual inspiration to commemorate the legacy of C.S. Lewis on his 60th Anniversary.

As you step into the Old Inn, you'll be greeted by the same inviting atmosphere that once welcomed C.S. Lewis himself during his honeymoon.
