  • Mount Stewart: A Neo-classical house, celebrated gardens and demesne on the shore of Strangford Lough.
  • Murlough Nature Reserve: A fragile 6000 year old sand dune system at the edge of Dundrum Bay and the Mourne Mountains.
  • Divis and Black Mountain: A spectacular viewpoint for walkers seeking panoramic views. On a clear day, there are views of Strangford Lough, the Mournes and the Sperrins as well as Donegal and Scotland.
  • Mussenden and Downhill: An iconic landmark, perched right on the cliff edge at Downhill Demesne. It’s one of the most photographed places in Ireland.
  • Castle Ward: A unique 18th-century mansion, famed for its mixture of architectural styles.
  • Giants Causeway: Northern Ireland's only UNESCO World Heritage Site almost 60 million years in the making.
