The Old Courthouse
A recent addition to the village which is renowned for its selection of antique and vintage emporiums. The Old Courthouse is one of Greyabbey’s oldest and most historic buildings.
It was here that countless poor souls were dealt with by the harshest of laws for even minor wrongdoings during the local Assizes, presided over by the local magistrate. Cold and austere, a visit to the building in the 1800’s would have struck fear into both law-abiding and less desirable locals alike
By contrast today within the historic walls of the Courthouse you can wander amongst treasures and immerse yourself in the serene ambiance, reminiscent of Provence. Allow yourself to be tempted by traditional French furniture, silverware, textiles, antique giftware and interior design pieces.
The historic setting is the perfect backdrop for the mix of modern and vintage items, each unique and desirable, seamlessly blending contemporary and antique in a timelessly elegant mix.
