The Major’s Bar is situated in Manor House.

The recently refurbished, 1757 bar is located in the original cellar of Manor House. Enjoy the sense of history as you relax amongst the vaulted ceilings, thick stone walls and atmospheric black and white photographs. The elegant 1757 bar enjoys a private terrace overlooking the River Nore and Ballylinch Stud.
