Situated at the lower end of the town Maginn’s of Castlewellan is definitely the new hot spot in Castlewellan with local and new customers, coming far and wide to enjoy everything this refreshing new bar complex, on the towns Main Street, has to offer.

Whether you want some quality affordable food, relax with friends and family over a drink or dance the night away to live bands then this outstanding family run bar has something for everyone.

Renowned for its friendly atmosphere, the whole building has been completely refitted with new bars on different levels, a function room and attractive features such as the new stain glass ceiling, sweeping wooden stair cases with unique carvings, comfortable snug style seating with lavish upholstery and air conditioning throughout.

Although from the outside Maginns of Castlewellan may not have appeared to have changed too much, appearances can be deceptive and an extensive rebuilding and refurbishing programme, costing well in excess of £2 m has resulted in a spacious 5000 sq. ft two storey bar complex.
