Having stayed here on business many times, it's the one place that I look forward to staying at because you can't beat the views. They are all breathtaking and the lough is well worth a visit. It's just a pity I go for work, it's on my list to visit in my own time.

We were very lucky with the weather to see the scenery as we travelled on the ferry from Strangford to the Ards Penisula.

We were advised to take the ferry from Strangford to Portaferry, then proceed on to Belfast, via Newtownards, along the eastern side of the Lough. This suggestion was excellent in that we were able to take on some lovely countryside on this leg of the trip - instead of merely heading north across countryside. The ferry was £5.80 for car...

The best way to see the lough is to take the main road from Newtownards to Portaferry. As you drive south away from Newtownards, there are views back across the water to Scrabo Tower and as you travel beyond Greyabbey rhere are views south west over the Mourne Mountains. A lunch stop at the Wildfowler in Greyabbey or further down... More

While waiting on the ferry to portaferry after spending a lovely morning in strangford my 6 year old son needed the toilet. I found toilets behind the ferry terminal. I wish I hadn't. I have never experienced anything like it. In this day and age this should not be allowed to happen. The smell was horrendous. The toilets themselves looked... More

I always loved going to Strangford Lough, we used to collect cockles and mussels when we were children,and cooking them on a camp fire near the beach and exploring in the woods. And even now as an adult going on the ferry is still a good buzz even now. I still like exploring around the Lough.

This is a beautiful little town and well worth a visit. It is close to the Mountains of Mourne and other places of interest such as Nendrum Celtic Monastery.

Based in Strangford itself, ideal peaceful spot on the Lough- side - we crossed to Portaferry by ferry and drove around this sea-lough stoping off at various places and heading up North and into Belfast over our week's stay. Good seafood and the natives are v friendly.
