Carryduff is a small County Down town on the outskirts of Belfast, within easy reach of the city itself, as well as Strangford Lough and the Ards Peninsula and coast on the other side.

Where to Go


Whether it’s for sightseeing, restaurants, or shopping, there’s lots to do in Belfast. Start at the Titanic Quarter to learn the history of this famous ship and how she and her impressive sister ships were built in the docklands here, then explore the Cathedral Quarter. Belfast’s food scene is vibrant too, whether you’re tasting bites at St. George’s Market at the weekend, or tucking into Michelin-starred meals at Deanes Eipic or Ox. Victoria Square is a good bet for fashion shopping, while the Entries laneways are prime for pubs.  The Crown pub dates back to the 1800s and still has wooden snugs (private areas).

Strangford Lough

This nature reserve attracts lots of birdlife, making it ideal for boat trips and birdwatching. Check out Castle Espie Wetland Centre on the edge of the lough, or the Nendrum Monastic Site to the south, then head to Killyleagh for camping options. At the bottom of the lough, you can take the ferry across The Narrows from Strangford to the town of Portaferry, from where you can continue exploring the shores of Strangford Lough and along the Ards Peninsula.

Ards Peninsula

Explore the stately home and gardens at Mount Stewart, set on the shores of the lough—you can take a tour of the house or wander in the gardens to spot wildlife. Or visit the harbour and lighthouse at Donaghadee before hitting the beaches to the south—good campsites sit around Ballyferris Point and Millisle Beach.

When to Go

The best time for camping is between May and September—the warmest temperatures are usually in July and August, but these are high season and school holiday times, so book in advance.

Know Before You Go

  • Weather can be unpredictable—be prepared for rain, mist, wind, and cooler temperatures at any time. Biting midges can be a problem in some locations.
  • Some campgrounds close for the winter or during storms and bad weather.
  • The busiest times for campsites are from Easter onwards, July, and August, plus bank holidays, especially the week around the July 12 holiday. Local festival times are also busy.
