Official Reopening of Kilkeel Bowling Pavilion

June 2024 - The East Down Advertiser

The Kilkeel Bowling Pavilion, located at Mourne Esplanade, unveiled its newly refurbished facility recently.  This transformative project, funded by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council has delivered an enhanced venue providing improved and modernised facilities for its users.

The project, which was developed in conjunction with Kilkeel Bowling club and other local stakeholders, is part of the broader Sport Facility Strategy 2017-2022.  The refurbishment works has breathed new life into the recreational centre, elevating it into a modern hub for leisure and sporting activities.

Key upgrades include the extension of the building which has facilitated a restructuring of the layout, enabling the expansion of the indoor hall and pavilion to accommodate larger events and gatherings.

Other improvements include the installation of a state-of-the-art heating system, new kitchen, new windows and patio doors, increasing accessibility and natural light to the premises and the provision of disability-accessible amenities. 

Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Valerie Harte said, "The refurbished Kilkeel Bowling Pavilion exemplifies the Council’s dedication to enhancing the wellbeing and quality of life for all members of our community.  I congratulate all those involved in bringing this project to life."

The launch event was also attended by local Councillors, representatives of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council and members of the Kilkeel Bowling Club, whose input into the refurbishment process helped shape the event space into a premier indoor bowling and entertainment venue.

Mr Norris Main, Team Selector and past Captain of Kilkeel Bowling Club said, "Members are thrilled to witness the culmination of months of hard work and dedication in bringing this project to fruition.  The refurbished facility provides a modern and comfortable environment for our members.  We extend a warm welcome to individuals from all walks of life and any new members wishing to join us in this sport."
