There are few towns in Ireland where it is possible to walk from a fairy-tale castle along a main street running all the way down to the shore. But it was a secret largely known only to locals. The combination of picture-postcard views and idyllic location in the country, yet within easy reach of Belfast, has in recent years made it the dream place to set up home and holiday in.
The Dufferin Coaching Inn is located less than ½ hour from Belfast as well as being conveniently close to Newtownards, Ballygowan, Comber, Balloo, Killinchy, Whiterock, Saintfield, Crossgar, Strangford and Downpatrick.
There is a variety of good pubs and restaurants close by with live music most nights.

You can reach us from Belfast by bus, and cars may be hired at either of Belfast's airports or city centre.
