The County Down region

The towns and villages of Mourne country are exciting destinations in their own right, also good bases for discovering the magic of the mountains and the sea.

The Ards Peninsula has many wonderful attractions, with Strangford Lough as it's main centrepiece. Coastal towns include Bangor, Donaghadee, Groomsport, Millisle, Portavogie and Portaferry. The Penisula is also home to two very popular National Trust properties as well as the beautifully restored National Trust village at Kearney.

Other popular resorts include Newcastle, where Slieve Donard really does 'sweep down to the sea' offers family fun, plus the bonus of mountains and championship golf (Royal County Down) on your doorstep. Nearby Bryansford and Tollymore are centres for outdoor adventure - from the sublime to the extreme. There is pony-trekking, bouldering, canoeing, abseiling, hillwalking and even Ireland's only mountainboarding facility! Both Tollymore and Castlewellan have outstanding forest parks. Silent Valley, inland from restored harbour hamlet, Annalong, is another gem. Big plans are afoot for the Mourne area - soon to be designated a National Park. Round the rocky coast, past busy fishing port Kilkeel, to Victorian Rostrevor. Its park begins as manicured lawns, but as you climb it becomes an arboretum, river walk and finally a mountain trail offering views across Carlingford Lough.

"Beautiful big house, with a huge garden, beside the beach"

My family had a lovely stay in this beautiful old manse, which is across the road from the beach at Cloughey. It has a huge garden which was super for the children and Archie the dog. Football nets and tennis equipment was supplied. There is welcome pack to start you off with the essentials and also a warm and friendly welcome from the owner Cora. The atmoshere was happy and homely in this bright clean and comfortable home. We had a very happy weeks stay, thank you
