Directions from Comber

Take the A22 (KillinchyRd) out of the town. Just beyond the 40mph limit, take a left unto the Ballydrain Rd. Continue for about 3 miles, then after passing The Old Schoolhouse Inn take a left unto the Ringneill Road, follow to the end, passing Mahee Castle

And ending at a layby on the right at the site


Lots of interesting roads in the area that take you along the western shores of Strangford Lough
Good to see those snaps....nostalgic......I used to have a house on Reagh Island before I moved here.......we used to dander along that road past Cross Island in summers as kids to get sweets at Mahee Island Golf Club shop and explore/climb in that old ruin.

Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.

Disappearing puddle ! Sir, it was huge, as big as the Great Bear Lake in Canada :? I was only small last time I saw it, there in the morning and gone in the afternoon :lol:

Any photo will do of any of the places, I would just like to know that they are still there and suggest that Whitehead might be a place for passersby to call in for a brew. My folks lived on Cable Road but there is nobody there now. At the time I was summer friends with the son of the vegetable shop owner. There was a cinema and it was the end of the line from Belfast. Funny I can see the little town as clear as if I were standing there but it had grown when I last visited about 20 years ago.

The Antrim coast road is spectacular.

Good thread this, giving me a few ideas for my upcoming trip to Northern Ireland, 10 day trip taking in the Enniskillen road races while there then after that staying a week at cottage in Ardglass, will be taking Moorso's Valhalla book with me with not been far from Strangford Lough.
Don't know if you have been before, but whilst in Enniskillen, a good spot to go to is the view point at Lough Navar Forest. Also, if looking somewhere different for a spot of lunch/dinner, Lusty Beg Island, located between Kesh and Belleek is very nice.

In Ardglass, if you like your fish and chips,you have to get the haddock and chips from The Galley in the village.

Nikki's kitchen cafe in Newcastle is also well worth a visit for great food/coffee etc

Enjoy your trip
