Welcome to Northern Ireland! County Down (Contae An Dúin in Gaelic) is one of the 6 northern counties that belong to the province of Ulster. With the Irish Sea to the east, County Down is a beautiful area, rich in archaeological remains and places to visit!

From prehistoric stone circles to ruined castles, don’t hesitate to explore County Down, whether it’s on the country side or the village side! There are plenty of places of interest to visit, and they are well worth the detour! Don’t miss the capital of the county : Downpatrick.
