FINDING A NEW VENUE:

If you are a new group or need to find a new venue the following list of venues in the Downpatrick area could be helpful to get you started in your search. Please note:
•    This is not a list of recommendations.
•    Start your search in good time – good value venues may be booked well in advance.
•    Other venues may become available in the future.
•    Details are given below where available and every effort is taken to make they are kept up to date.
•    You should not sign any rental agreement (see Finance Guidelines).
•    Most of the venues may be open to negotiation on their normal hire rate, especially for block bookings.
•    If may suit your group to be located outside Downpatrick and you should consider venues such as the Dan Rice Hall, Drumaness or Ballynahinch Leisure Centre which are good value; some venues may even be free of charge.
