 County Down - two walking and driving tours of County Down


Mytourtalk has two suggested day trips in County Down. Each scenic driving tour starts in Belfast and is approximately 120kms long and 2/3 hours of driving time - depending on your pace!

County Down is probably best known for its extremely picturesque beauty spots, most notably Strangford Lough in North Down, and the famous Mountains of Mourne sweeping down to the sea in South Down.

The North Down trip starts out in Mountstewart, a beautiful National Trust stately home, on the shores of Strangford Lough. From there travel for less than an hour to Portaferry, before taking a short ferry crossing to another fishing village, Strangford and the National Trust property Castleward.

From Castleward you may return to Belfast or continue onto Downpatrick in the second County Down day trip in South Down.

Downpatrick is a good 40 minute drive from Belfast and features the new St. Patrick's Centre and Down Cathedral where St. Patrick is buried.

From Downpatrick it is about a 20 minute drive to a stunning sandy beach in Murlough Nature Reserve before a brief 10 minute drive to Newcastle at the foot of the majestic Mountains of Mourne. And from there it is only a 2 minute drive into Tollymore Forest Park where you will experience the fresh mountain air, before returning to Belfast in approximately 50 minutes.

The North Down and South Down play-lists are about 55 mb and around 40 minutes in duration.
