Barr Hall Barns - Barn

The Strangford Lough area is steeped in history. It boasts 5th century early Christian associations with the presence of St Patrick around Downpatrick and the Lecale area. Its coastline is dotted with abbey ruins and early Christian sites which were ruined by Vikings in the 9th and 10th centuries. Thereafter is a Norman legacy of fortified castles and houses around parts of the Lough all associated with the De Courcy family and their feudal retainers.

The barns are on the southern tip of the Ards Peninsula, 3.5 miles south of Portaferry situated on Barr Hall Bay, a seal basking location protected by the National Trust. The Barns overlook the Narrows and the Barmouth with its turbulent waters that prompted the Viking invaders to name it the ‘Strang Fjiord’. The Lough is a site of Special Scientific Interest and of Outstanding Natural Beauty. On the other side lies the Lecale area and views from the site stretch to the Mourne Mountains.

13,000 Brent Geese winter on the Lough each year.Barrhall bay is a haven for overwintering geese and waders of all sorts
