One of Ireland's Oldest Pubs


External view of the CrossKeys Inn


The Crosskeys Inn is one of Irelands most famous Irish Traditional Music Pubs. Musicians from all over Ireland have at one time or another played within (and outside) it's walls. It is a thatched stone-built cottage with whitewashed walls and was once a Coaching Stop on the old Belfast to Derry road. It was also, a shop which sold everything for a rural community in the old times (see some of the receipts on the walls), a Post Office and of course a Bar. Nobody knows for sure when it was built but it is thought to be around 1740.

Irish tradition Music Sessions are held every Saturday night 8.00 till Late (all Musicians welcome). Impromptu sessions some Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays (again all Musicians welcome).

Come in and rest your bones in front of the blazing turf fire in the Kitchen and enjoy the craic and music, or go into the big room, play the piano, sing a song or two, or maybe listen to a storyteller. Tell a Yarn or three yourself ???

The Crosskeys Inn is situated at the junction of the Grange Road & Crosskeys Road, which is halfway along the main Randalstown - Portglenone Road B52. From Belfast take the M2 & turn off for Randalstown & Portglenone, straight through Randalstown towards Portglenone B52 for five miles, signpost on left side for Crosskeys, we are at the end of the road.
