The Old Post Office, Lisbane

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

The Post Office building in Lisbane – a handsome converted café since 2004, has recently changed hands. The historic destination is now managed by Stuart and Julia McLaughlin, and in the process has changed subtly from the Old Post Office to become OPO. The graphic modernisation of the name hasn’t altered the olde worlde feel inside the labyrinthine interior, where wooden tables and cushioned wooden chairs weave their way around the various interconnected rooms, some overlooking the courtyard in this landmark building that dates right back to 1840.
In the centre of this hub of activity is a self-service counter, and the rooms lead into a gift shop at one end, and a takeaway counter or Pantry at the other, where customers can take home many of the dishes available on the menu.
The beamed and panelled interior is as busy as ever, with a charming offer of tea room specials, such as vol au vents, stuffed jacket potatoes, and quiches. Everything is baked on site, and the dining room buzzes with groups, couples, individuals and generations.
Comber and this region of County Down has become quite a food destination, and visitors should make sure not to miss the nearby Wetland Bird Sanctuary in Castle Espie.
