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.

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

I should begin with a caveat. I am a Strangford Lough native and enjoyed many of the sights and activities as a boy, however, I didn't actually appreciate the place until moving abroad as an adult. I imagine I would have given the Lough a 3 star rating on the trip advisor scale while living there, believing that the outside... More
