Coney Island

This fully modernised, 19th century fisherman’s cottage is set in a tranquil coastal location with large, private, mature gardens. It overlooks the RAMSAR reserve of Killough Bay, which is rich in marine and bird life. The cottage is located one mile from Ardglass, a 16th century port with five castles, a fishing fleet, golf club, and marina.

It is situated in the Lecale region, a designated area of historical and geographic significance, and has stunning views of the Mourne Mountains.

Newcastle and the Mourne Mountains are less than 20 miles away, Downpatrick, home to St Patrick’s grave, is eight miles away, and Northern Ireland's capital, Belfast, is just 29 miles from the property.

The National Trust's Castle Ward is located eight miles from the cottage. From there you can take a ferry across the spectacular Strangford Lough, a marine nature reserve, to Portaferry, home to the Exploris Aquarium.

Coney Island is well known from Van Morrison’s song “Coney Island” and was the location for the 2011 Oscar winning short film “The Shore”.
