General

There’s a stonking stretch of sand a paltry pebble throw away from Cloughey Holiday Park in Co Down, a family holiday park with direct access to the beach and heaps of sandy dunes. And as it’s edged by the comely coastal village of Cloughey and set on the beachfront, the views of the wild Irish Sea from Cloughey Holiday Park might just blow you away too – and you’ll be within easy access of other accolades of the Ards Peninsula, Strangford Lough and the beaches of Ballywalter, Millisle and more.

Or might you prefer to tee off instead? Although it’s a teeny village, Cloughey has two first-class golf courses (one rated among the top 12 in Northern Ireland), so bring the clubs as well as the camera and bucket and spade. And a good appetite for city sightseeing, shopping and eats: capital city Belfast is about 20 miles along the coast…

The well-maintained level pitches at Cloughey Holiday Park are suitable for tents, tourers and motorhomes, and the park has showers, loos, wifi and a launderette. As befits a slice of coast with several dog-friendly beaches, pooches are welcome on the park too.

Directions


From Belfast, head east along the A20 to Newtownards, then from Newtownards head south along Portaferry Road (A20) continuing along Shore Road (A20). After Kircubbin, turn left on to Rubane Road.

Local attractions

The beach at Cloughey, directly accessible from the park, is a beaut: wide expanse of sand, acres of sand dunes and the well-regarded 18-hole golf course courtesy of Kirkistown Castle Golf Club at the beach’s landward side, where there’s also a play area and tennis courts. A 9-hole golf course lies just to the south of Cloughey at Portaferry’s Ardminnan Golf Club, also with views of the Irish Sea that might make you miss your shot…

Both Ballywalter and Millisle beaches, within seven and 12 miles of Cloughey Holiday Park, are dog-friendly all year round and are wildlife-laden with wintering birds and placid seals. Of the two, Ballywalter is the quieter and has plenty of rockpools to splash about in and the raised Lime Kilns area for eye-watering vistas of the coastline; Millisle has a gorgeous 150 metre stretch, a slipway and jetty, and access to the East Coast Canoe Trail, 70 miles’ worth of paddling along the east Antrim and Co Down coasts, Strangford Lough and into/across Belfast Lough.

The Ards Peninsula and its surrounds are very suitable for curious historians: take time to see Kirkistown Castle, built in 1622 and open to the public daily in summer; Grey Abbey, a twelfth century priory at Greyabbey village; Scrabo Tower above Newtownards, another worthy place of climbing up to with the camera, and the National Trust house Mount Stewart with acres of gorgeous gardens. The Somme Heritage Centre is just to the north of Newtownards at Conlig.

Castles and castle ruins are dotted all over Northern Ireland too: as well as Kirkistown, look up in Co Down for Strangford Castle and Portaferry Castle, facing each other across Strangford Lough; Dundrum Castle with views to the Mourne mountains, and the award-winning gardens at Bangor Castle in the grounds of a nineteenth century country house.

More modernly, bikers and car enthusiasts in the area can zip to Kirkistown Motor Circuit for speed-based events, or hang around Scrabo Tower after the photoworthy climb for woodland walks around Scrabo Country Park and another teeing off time at Scrabo Golf Club. Rock enthusiasts (music not geology) can also have an envious time browsing at the hand-crafted goods of Avalon Guitars in Newtownards, where Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison and Sinead O’Connor have all picked up pieces.

Towns and villages are all along the coast for other sorts of shopping, eats and drinks: Newtownards is the biggest Ards Peninsula town, but you’ll also find fresh local produce, purty pubs and restaurants at centres like Portaferry, Donaghadee and Portavogie. The seaside town of Bangor, just outside the peninsula, is a popular family tourist spot in summer and has a lively pub music scene for grownups.

Just over 20 miles from Cloughey is Northern Ireland’s capital Belfast: get here early for a crammed day trip crammed to see the spanking new Titanic Centre, St George's Market, tours of City Hall, the Ulster Museum and Botanic Gardens, and an essential brunchtime Ulster fry at one of the many reasonably priced city centre cafés.
