This bar has been around since before the English settlers landed in America (in 1620) and when it originally opened on this exact site on Donaghadee's High Street in 1611, it was known as The King's Arms. 

Since then, Grace Neill's has been visited by countless locals over the years, as well as smugglers and pirates, sailors and soldiers. Fishermen and lifeboatmen, businessmen and rascals have all enjoyed a drink or two in the original snugs at the front of the bar. 

These snugs exist to this day, having been visited by a range of distinguished names in the generations since: names such as writer Daniel Defoe and composer Franz Liszt, as well as poet John Keats and even Peter The Great of Russia. 

In more recent years, stars from the world of celebrity (such as Tina Turner) have enjoyed their stay with us and over the years to come we hope that many more celebrated people will call in to see us. You never know who'll be sat beside you in these cosy snugs.
