Mount Stewart is an awe-inspiring and unusual garden belonging to the National Trust. It’s one of the best-preserved Irish country demesnes and the house has recently reopened after a three-year-long restoration project. You can now experience the elegance and charm of the house when it was home to the 7th Marchioness Edith, Lady Londonderry and her family in the early 20th century. You can enjoy six kilometres of walking trails that wind through a landscape that boasts a range of plants from all corners of the world, ensuring there’s something to see whatever the season.

Donaghadee Harbour

What better way to spend a relaxing afternoon than taking a stroll along the cobbled sea walk and out to the lighthouse at Donaghadee Harbour? The walk gives you a good view of the small but picturesque and friendly coastal town. If you fancy some peace and quiet in the fresh air, Donaghadee Harbour is the ideal spot and there’s plenty to look at with the old remnants of a once-vibrant fishing industry. It’s a lovely day out whatever the weather and the mood can range from tranquil to stormy depending on what time of year you go.
