Old Inn to open its doors after £1m refurbishment

The Old Inn in Crawfordsburn is to open its doors once more on September 3 following a £1m refurbishment carried out by its new owners.

LCN was first with the news that Galgorm Collection had acquired the historic venue in a multi-million-pound deal in April of this year and guests will soon be able to see how it has been revitalized and reimagined.

A new-look 1614 Bar and 120-seater Old Inn restaurant offers diners a brand new menu that marries homely classics with modern dining, while a large outdoor patio provides a front row view of Crawfordsburn Country Park.

Plans are also in progress to upgrade each of the 32 bedrooms, while junior suites will incorporate bespoke finishing touches including free-standing copper baths whilst the larger suite boasts its own private balcony complete with hot tub.

The exclusive Cottage accommodation situated in the grounds of The Old Inn will also come complete with its own secluded outdoor hot tub for the ultimate in tranquility.

Not only that but the development of a brand-new Tree Top Spa, featuring a vitality pool, two hot tubs, steam room and sauna and forest view relax space are also progressing as are plans to reimagine the hotel’s two wedding spaces.

Colin Johnston, Galgorm Collection Managing Director, said: “After more than four months of extensive renovations and a strategic investment of £1 million, we’re excited to finally reveal The Old Inn’s brand new look and to welcoming guests and visitors from Friday 3 September.

“The Old Inn is one of Northern Ireland’s most historic hotels and our refurbishment works have been carefully considered to retain the property’s charm whilst updating the offering and experience for a new generation.

“We’ve significantly invested in remodeling the bar and restaurant area, upgrading room specifications and constructing a brand new outdoor spa area which will open in the new year.

“We’re delighted to throw open the doors to visitors and guests alike and to welcome back the full Old Inn staff team to deliver the first-class service which Galgorm is renowned for.

“This has been a long-awaited project and we’re already experiencing strong demand for bookings, with the new website now live and available for booking overnight stays, dining experiences and private event hire.”
