Introducing Portaferry

Portaferry (Port an Pheire), a neat huddle of streets around a medieval tower house, enjoys an attractive setting looking across the turbulent Narrows to a matching tower house in Strangford. A renowned marine-biology station on the waterfront uses the lough as an outdoor laboratory, and you can investigate the local marine life yourself at the Exploris aquarium.
