Ards Visitor Information Centre & Ards Crafts

The tranquil shores of Strangford Lough are yours to explore; from breath taking sea and landscapes, country houses and gardens, to the excitement of the motor race circuit at Kirkistown! So, why not discover this region? Take an organised Blue Badge Tour on foot, by bus or boat or get up close with the past on a living history tour? Learn of St Patrick’s journey or links with the Ulster Scots and Titanic on a driving tour. And, of course, there’s an abundance of creative talent in the many craft studios and art galleries as well as in craft and design centres such as Ards Crafts, home to a vast array of local, unique, handcrafted gifts, inspired by the beauty of the region. Or, get creative in one of Ards Craft’s Meet the Maker craft workshops throughout the year.
