“Tranquil, spiritual and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

We were recommended this visit and, although tricky to find, it is well worth the effort. It was quite a grey day when we set off, but the low cloud on the journey over the narrow causeways and around the waters edge truly added an air of mystery and atmosphere. The ruins on the site and information boards are very interesting; it's packed with history and science (how did we forget to use tidal energy?) and I found it easy to imagine how the people lived and functioned in this remote location. The small, unobtrusive information centre is educational, both for adults and children.

“Good place to unwind”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Interesting old archaeological site, complete with informative boards. Had the place to ourselves when we visited, so was nice place to kick back and take in Strangford Lough. Small site but worth a visit if you are in the area and can find it!

Been living only a few miles from this place for years but only recently visited. Have been there countless times since. Something very special here. The views are simply amazing.

“Beautiful and Tranquil”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

I live quite close by and go very often, it's one of my favourite places. So peaceful and quiet with beautiful views. An insight into the history at the visitors centre. It's also lovely for a picnic or a stroll around. My granddaughter loves it and can run around to her hearts content. We always take any of our visitors there. Summer or winter it's a truly beautiful spot.

“A peaceful Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

This site is full of fascinating history and is a step way back in time. Great for slightly older children who are doing history at school, and a haven of peace for the rest of us.
