So I phoned to hire bikes, arranged a time to collect- no staff to be seen anywhere. Phoned the number, left a message- still waiting... Wasn't a complete wasted journey from Belfast, despite the grounds being closed we were able to walk round the estate. Bad form.

Hello, can you please give us a call on 028 4372 3933 as we do not have your contact details. It is unclear what has happened here as we where open that day and our staff where in the centre and courtyard with other customers. Castle Ward is a large estate and we are thinking you may have been in... More

We stopped at Castle Ward as part of a Game of Thrones tour. I'd have to say it was the highlight of our tour. While the rest of our group went on a tour of Castle Ward we opted to stay and do archery with the amazing William. He was funny, kind and informative, and our experience was one of... More

Title is misleading - coffee and a scone isn't my idea of brunch! More positive things. Guide/helmsman was friendly, careful about safety issues and informative about features around the lough. Could have had more input about the wildlife of the lough, especially concerning its importance in migration and breeding for birds. Overall we enjoyed the trip including the bouncy bits!... More

This is a brilliant experience and I would recommend it to anyone. The guide was very informative, we were amazed by the scenery and the sheer enjoyment of being on a boat on the open water of Strangford Lough. We felt safe at all times, enjoyed a lovely homemade scone and cup of tea on Augus Rock and had lots... More

I absolutely loved our brunch on a boat experience. I'd booked it for my husband as a gift and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Such a different, fun & interesting way to spend a morning!

We took a boat trip on Strangford Lough. The guide was very helpful and informative and good fun too. We didn't know about this company before but would highly recommend them for a good value and good fun day out.

A highlight of our trip to Northern Ireland was our time at Winterfell. We had great fun trying to shoot arrows as surrogate members of the Stark clan. Unfortunately we never did fell that deer, but we did manage to shoot a few wildlings and hit the targets. Our informative guide William had worked with the actors on GOT and... More

What a beautiful area! Staff at clear sky are very friendly and helpful. I bought a gift voucher for my husband and was disappointed that what I booked, they no longer offer, so had to take another activity , turned out was pretty good fun.

We had booked a personal Game of Thrones archery session at Castle Ward this past August while my family was visiting Ireland. It was beyond anything we could have imagined! William was a fantastic host and we had a wonderful time. We were so thankful he was able to take the time to point out the other shooting locations from... More
