“afternoon coffee”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

came upon this tea shop by accident. Very surprised with the quality of the food. Great atmosphere with a really quirky and interesting interior. Would go back again for the cakes as they were really enjoyable, especially the pear and almond/ raspberry tartlet. Seems to close at 4pm so check opening times.

“Historic WOW!”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Must visit location for anyone visiting Armagh. We visited St Pat's cathederal, N0.5 The Hill and the Library. Each was excellent in terms of the information provided, the spectacle and contents but above all - the warmth of the people who welcomed us and explained the significance and history of each of these locations.
Everything is within 50 meters of each other as is No.4 The Hill where one can have a meal or a cup of coffee in a historic but still creatively modern set up. Test your eyes for the factors which makes it unique every so often you spot something else.... oh look!

“Wonderfully restored 240 year old Registry”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

What a jewel in the Crown of the City! We expected to drop in for 10 minutes and spent most of the afternoon with a first rate guide, Stephen Day who apart from introducing us to this remarkable treasue trove made sure we were able to make our next scheduled call by telephoning the Librarian of the Public library, which built at the same time, it so well complements.

“The Registry is an amazing surprise!”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

Behind the facade of Vicar's Hill, one of the houses is not what it seems.... With the appearance of a residential house, number 5 inside is an amazing hexagonal stone building, formerly safe storage for documents, now a gem of a little museum- not to be missed! Loved our visit and browsing the Archbishop's coin collection... a good attraction for children and adults alike- helpful staff.
