The Doors of Northern Ireland: Owen’s Bar and the Fullerton Arms

On our third day in Northern Ireland, we left Lough Erne after a delicious breakfast at the hotel and embarked on a journey that gave us a wonderful tour of the amazing shores of the North Coast.

Our very first stop was in Limavady where we visited Owen’s Bar and were introduced to its current owner, Garry (his father, Frank, passed away at the age of 99 this April) . We had a great time talking about his bar with Garry and we got the sense that, like many other pubs, is a true social centre of its community. Owen’s Bar is the host of the 5th door, or as we nicknamed it, “‘The Door’ door”, which makes it a definite must-see for anyone interested in glimpsing at least some of the doors while visiting the country.

Much of the rest of the day was spent taking in the breathtaking scenery of the North Coast, seeing such sights as Ballintoy Harbour and the Giant’s Causeway. The 6th door can be found at the Fullerton Arms in Ballintoy and here we found that they had set up a whole Game of Thrones room with shields, display armor, and more in a nice space made for a quiet chat or for some gaming thanks to the stack of board games in the room.
