The facilities in this refurbished building are excellent. The main hall can accomodate up to 80 people. A small meeting room is also available and we have a modern kitchen equipped with a wide range of appliances, crockery and cutlery. From children and adult birthday parties to more formal receptions and meetings the Old School provides the Holywood community and beyond with a unique and charming venue. Modern toilet facilities are provided including a disabled toilet and access for the disabled.
The Old School was built in 1845 as the Parochial National School and continued in use as a school until 1878. Since then is has served as a parish hall and, from 1916, also as a scout hall, but by the beginning of this century, it had badly deteriorated.
Because it was a well-loved building and part of Holywood’s history, the Holywood Old School Preservation Trust was formed in April 2004 to restore the Old School and then to use it for the benefit of the community in Holywood. The Trust is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity.
The Holywood Old School is a unique venue and we would be happy to chat to you about booking for any event.
