Situated around a stunning coastline that overlooks the southern shores of Belfast Lough, North Down’s hinterland of rolling green hills, atmospheric towns and proximity to Belfast make it one of the most desirable areas in Northern Ireland.
Bangor, the main town, is a bustling and prosperous seaside resort with the second largest marina on the island of Ireland. Just outside Belfast, charming Holywood is renowned for chic shops and restaurants and the best of café society. Among the area’s most appealing villages are the seaside resorts of Groomsport and Donaghadee and, just inland from beautiful Helen’s Bay, Crawfordsburn. Excellent road and rail links to Belfast make it perfect commuter territory.
