Tina Turner's Pub

By Andrew_Hurley
Grace Neill’s is listed as ‘The Oldest Pub in Ireland’ in “The Guinness Book of Records”, it was almost four centuries ago in 1611 when “The King’s Arms” first opened its doors for business in Donaghadee, Co. Down. Today the bar is firmly established as a popular tourist attraction within the North Down area; visitors from every continent have sampled Irish hospitality and an obligatory pint of Guinness within these walls.

This dark tavern has played host to many famous names of centuries gone by; it was welcomed visitors as diverse as the aristocrat Peter the Great, the composer Franz Liszt and poet John Keats. More recent tourists have included Tina Turner, and the former Beirut hostage Brian Keenan even enjoyed a pint here after his release from captivity.

Imagine having a pint and Tina Turner is propping up the bar next to you!!!

It's fairly close to Belfast, so it's certainly possible if she was touring at the time. I know she was touring the UK March last year.

When she popped into Grace Neill's, apparently she complained about the Steamy Windows but still said it was Simply the Best pub in Ireland she's ever visited. Sorry couldn't resist that one!
