Situated on the shoreline of Strangford Lough, Castle Ward is located just over a mile from the picturesque coastal village of Strangford.
The trails are approximately an hour’s drive from Belfast. Take the A24 to Carryduff and continue straight on the A7 through Saintfield and Crossgar to Downpatrick. On entering Downpatrick, take the first left at the roundabout before turning right onto the A25 (signposted Strangford). The entrance to Castle Ward is located 7.4 miles along this road on the left hand side.
Please note: Distance is calculated as air distance or "as the crow flies" the most direct route between two points, so the distance by road maybe slightly longer.
