The Boathouse has a fantastic location on the shore of Strangford Lough, tucked away on the beautiful Sketrick Island. The house is luxurious and fully merits it's NITB 5 star status. Mornings and evenings were spent admiring the beautiful views across the Lough to Greyabbey and beyond. The peaceful surroundings ensured a very restful holiday. The owners, Lindy and Henry,... more

I spent a week in the Boathouse along with 7 other people. The setting is idyllic, the views beautiful. The house is a joy to stay in. Even with 8 of us, there was loads of room. I would totally recommend it. Just a note: to get there drive right to Balloo before you turn left down to the Lough! more

Thank you for your lovely review. We hope you will come back to Sketrick soon. more
