Strangford Lough


Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Strangford Lough is Northern Ireland’s first marine nature reserve and is the British Isles’ largest inlet, internationally renowned for its marine, plant and wildlife.

Tour along the Ards Peninsula and enjoy the combination of stunning scenery and picturesque villages and towns. Seafood is the speciality of the region and the fishing fleet of Portavogie keeps many of the local seafood restaurants well supplied with the very best quality of turbot, plaice, langoustine and brill, providing a real taste of the region.

Steeped in Christian heritage sites, the area forms part of the Saint Patrick’s driving trail – indeed the area to the south east of the Lough around Downpatrick is commonly known as Saint Patrick’s Country due to is close links with the saint and is known the world over as the burial place of Saint Patrick.
