I don't know what to say about it. It is there on an intersection and actually near some antique shops and Camphill Community Organic foods, where nice food is available to sit in or take home.

Holywood town is worth a visit, lots of coffee shops, eateries and charity shops but if you come simply for the maypole you may be disappointed to find it is just a pole in the middle of the road.

This is back to basics bar but what a Guinness and atmosphere. A Co.down must! Take a seat and the guys will come to you!

The maypole really isn't much until May Day when it is transformed. A great attraction for May Day celebrations.

Was in Belfast for May weekend so paid Holywood a visit for the Maypole. Small town but a great atmosphere, loads to see, lovely stalls in the town centre, entertainment for the kids, maypole dancing, everyone very friendly.

The Maypole in Holywood is a centre piece for the May Day celebrations. Every year there is a fantastic market, which leads up the maypole where there is a dance. Well worth a visit as Holywood is just outside of Belfast and is accessible by...More

My father & I popped into the Maypole during a quick visit to Holywood recently. We were impressed by the hospitality shown by the landlord & regulars & wished we could have stayed longer in this very welcoming pub.

Unless you are visiting Holywood on May Day or some other local festival all you will see is a large pole at the crossroads in the centre of town, so nothing of note really!

Not much more to say - except drivers need to be wary of its position in the middle of the road. I've never been there on May Day so I suppose I'm missing out.
