Churchill Room, Londonderry Arms
The Londonderry Arms Hotel was built in 1848 as a coaching inn by Frances Anne Tempest, Marchioness of Londonderry. She married Charles William, Lord Stewart, the British Ambassador to Austria, later the third Marquis of Londonderry.

The Marquis died in 1854 and on the death of Lady Londonderry in 1865 the Carnlough estate passed to her son Henry the fifth Earl. After his death in 1884, the estate passed to her grandson Herbert Vane Tempest who was tragically killed in a train accident in Wales in 1921. After his death the estate, including the hotel, passed to his second cousin, Sir Winston Churchill. A picture of him can be seen above the mantle-piece

In 1934 Winston Churchill sold the hotel to the Lyons family. During the Second World War part of the hotel was commissioned by the Army to allow for the recuperation of wounded soldiers; after the war in 1946 Mr Lyons sold the hotel in several lots which considerably reduced its size.

For 60 years the hotel has been owned by the O'Neill family who are the longest established hotelier families in Ireland, see D2817 : The Londonderry Arms Carnlough
