About the Area

Portaferry is a small town in County Down, Northern Ireland, at the southern end of the Ards Peninsula, near the Narrows at the entrance to Strangford Lough. It is home to the Exploris aquarium and is well known for the annual Gala Week Float Parade. It hosts its own small Marina, the Portaferry Marina.

Starting in Portaferry town centre, the route follows the shoreline north of Portaferry, turning inland towards Kirkistown and reaching the Irish Sea at Cloughey with its expansive beach. Keeping the sea on your left you will arrive after a short detour at the National Trust village of Kearney with its beautifully preserved collection of white washed cottages and houses. You then continue towards the southernmost point of the peninsula, Ballyquintin Point before returning to Portaferry close to the Narrows where spectacular tidal races can be seen twice a day.

The quiet roads on the southern end of the Peninsula are ideal for a carefree cycle with minimum disruption from vehicles, whilst the many sandy beaches are ideal for a picnic by the sea. A regular ferry service (bikes are carried free) links to the village of Strangford on the other side of the Lough.

Portaferry can be accessed by public transport from Newtownards, Belfast and other towns. For further timetable information visit www.translink.co.uk. Bikes can be hired from Mike the Bike Cycle Hire, 53 Frances Street, Newtownards T: 028 9181 1311. Parking is available in Portaferry town centre where the route begins.

Portaferry is located on the A20 from Newtownards, or via the Strangford Ferry from Downpatrick and the A25. Ferry times are available from http://www.roadsni.gov.uk/index/strangfordferry.htm
