Portaferry Hotel Northern Ireland

“An excellent and unpretentious waterfront hotel overlooking Strangford Lough. Cosy, elegant interiors behind its 18th century facade. Fantastic food in the award-winning restaurant and cookery masterclasses with the executive chef. Utterly charming and great for groups. ”

“Right on the waterfront, this is a deservedly popular hotel, with a thoroughly refurbished interior behind its 18th century facade. With welcoming owners, it feels cosy and traditional, yet also fresh, with pretty, well equipped bedrooms, some of which overlook the water, and excellent, unpretentious food in the restaurant featuring local produce such as Ulster beef, Mourne lamb and locally landed fish. Breakfasts are a treat. Recommended.”

They say

“Not much is know about the appearance of Portaferry until the last century. We have very old buildings surviving to this day like the Castle and the Church ruins at Templecraney, but generally the buildings that were part of it. There are details, fragments of plasterwork and joinery that have survived that suggest by the middle of the 18th century the water was lined by buildings from the comer of castle street to St Patrick’s Hall. Harris in 1744 describes its appearance as run down but a substantial settlement none the less.”
