If you’re thinking about a holiday rental in Northern Ireland then look no further than the beautiful region of County Down. The scenery is simply breathtaking, from the majestic Mountains of Mourne (renowned for being the inspiration for CS Lewis’s ‘Narnia’) to the lush Tollymore Forest and the shimmering waters of Strangford Lough. And the opportunities for fresh air and outdoor pursuits are boundless - whether you want to climb the high peak of Slieve Donard, play a round on one of the exceptional golf courses, go fishing in the lakes or gently explore the countryside on foot, bike or horseback.
A holiday in County Down also offers an abundance of history and culture. The County Down Museum is full of wonderful stories, Hillsborough Castle boasts glorious gardens and there are numerous Game of Thrones filming locations to discover, not least the National Trust owned Castle Ward (aka ‘Winterfell’). And there are also plenty of opportunities to sample local cuisine, especially in the coastal town of Newcastle which is home to a diversity of excellent eateries. From its deserted beaches and glacial valleys to its inviting village pubs and spectacular ancient sites, County Down has a huge amount to offer its visitors - make your next holiday in Northern Ireland an unforgettable one.
