We were lucky, beautiful sunny day.called at St John's Point where the lighthouse is, really worth going to. Then on to Strangford. The harbour is so pretty. It was a Sunday & really busy. People sitting on benches outside restaurants & the sun shining down. Most houses had flowers/plants etc decorating their homes. We walked around the village, really lovely,... More

Helped by bright sunshine, the whole area was a delight. The gardens at Mount Stewart were amazing, once we ignored the Satnav which took us to the wrong place based on their postcode. The whole east side was picturesque but some signposting was poor, looking for Ballyquintin.

Beuaty Of the place, lovely walks and the historic buildings if you can find them as traffic signage leaves something to be desired. SATNAV on mobile not good as reception poor

Stunning and magnificent scenery with an overwhelming sense of peace. Take time to explore Strangford Lough. Dont let the weather put you off, even on a grey day it is a special place.

Lovely place to visit, particularly if the weather isn't too bad. You can drive around the outskirts of The Lough, or take the ferry across it which takes about 15 minutes. Great scenery everywhere and lots of little beaches dotted around the fringes. This is possibly the most beautiful part of Northern Ireland in my opinion.

What can I say - watch the sunset going down over Strangford lough from Windmill Hill Portaferry - it is fantastic.

We holidayed in Strangford at the National trust site, September 2014. It was in the most stunning location with super walks and easy walking distance to the quaint town of Strangford. The area is absolutely beautiful and if your interests are the natural world, then this area has everything you need.

We travelled from Newtownards to Portaferry to catch the ferry to take us to Strangford. It was a lovely sunny day and the views across the lough were stunning. We have travelled the length and breadth of Ireland and both agreed that the scenery was on a par with if not better than other areas we have visited.

I live in Newtownards at the north end of Strangford Lough and sometimes I wonder how an area can be so beautiful. Each day provides differing views, depending on the weather at the time. Now called Strangford and Lecale, the Lough and it`s surrounds has achieved "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" status. The area can be traced back 9000 years... More
