Welcome to the Stables Groomsport

A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Amazing Customers!

Nestled between the vibrant city of Bangor and the charming town of Donaghadee rests the serene coastal village of Groomsport, County Down. It’s here, amidst the tranquil coastal beauty, that The Stables has stood as a beloved cornerstone of our community since the 1960s. The Stables is just under 17 miles from Belfast.
