THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of Grace Neill's Pub.

Self proclaimed as the oldest public house or 'pub' in Ireland, (not true. The oldest pub is Sean's Bar in Athlone which has been around since 900 AD) it is located in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland.

Establishing itself as a pub in 1611 when it opened to the public, it was owned and managed by Grace Neill a colorful lady for the late nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries. She was a sharp woman and welcomed strangers to her pub with a kiss as greeting. She passed away in 1916, though it is claimed her spirit lives on to guide the running of her public house.

Many portraits depicting Grace Neill adorn the walls of the pub and it has apparently stayed much the same since her ownership of it (though whether that is due to the guiding hand of her spirit or not is up for debate).

The front room is where the unexplained activity occurs with glasses moving around, lights going on and off and footsteps being heard overhead. Some claim to have seen a lady in Victorian dress 'within a puff of steam' roam the pub and have felt an invisible presence as well.

Dear Grace remains contentious as ever.
