Proclaiming to be Ireland’s oldest thatched pub, The Crosskeys Inn has made a name for itself, not just for its delicious meals and great ambience but as one of Ireland’s first Irish Traditional Music Pubs. The pub is an excellent place for live music and retains most of its 17th Century form.Many of its guests say the décor (including receipts from its days as a rural store) and the mostly unmodified structure of the inn transfer them back to days past. The pub is located near walking, cycling, fishing and golfing trails, and offers the best of brew, food and Northern Ireland’s famed scenery.
