Ownies Bar & Bistro

Winner of Northern Ireland Neighbourhood Pub of the Year Award in 2010, our current owner is proud to support numerous local charities and run a number of community events. Visit Ownies Bar & Bistro and you will find friendly locals and tourists alike.

Proud of our history, you can expect to find something for all ages at our bar. We run a range of events, from our regular open mic night through to retro discos and seasonal functions.

'Had the pleasure of celebrating my friend's birthday in the beautiful new restaurant last night. Food fantastic, atmosphere relaxing and the staff were more than friendly. Definitely recommend to anyone of any age.'

- Siobhan
If you're looking for a traditional restaurant with a modern twist, look no further than Ownies Bar & Bistro. Whether it's a locally-sourced special or a quiet drink by the fire, you will find it all in our welcoming venue.

Established as The Joymount Arms in 1846, the bar has since been re-branded as Ownies Bar & Bistro. The name change came about in tribute to Leo McCullogh, owner of the bar for over 70 years. Fondly nicknamed 'Ownie' after the patrons overheard his grandchildren failing to pronounce his name, the name has stuck ever since. A caricature of Ownie himself now stands proud over the bar entrance - a fitting tribute to our famous predecessor.
