Crawfordsburn Country Park

Places to See | Co. Down, Northern Ireland.



Crawfordsburn Country Park is situated on the southern shores of Belfast Lough. It is full of variety, featuring 3.5.km of coastline, often rugged and rocky, the two best beaches in Northern Ireland, a deep wooded glen with an impressive waterfall at its head, a pond and wild-flower meadows with excellent views over the Lough.

The park is very popular with families but, with its tranquil walks through peaceful meadows, large open spaces and coastal paths, never feels busy.

The famous Nature and Wildlife of Northern Ireland is celebrated in a Countryside Centre on site.

The Park also includes Grey Point Fort, a coastal battery and gun emplacement dating from early this century and updated during World War 2.
