A town full of character, overlooking a rugged blue bay!
The name Ardglass comes from the Irish words ‘Ard Ghlais’, meaning ‘green height’. This name stems from an ancient time when the town was encircled by seawater. Sitting in a natural inlet and surrounded by green hills, the harbour has been a safe haven for fishing boats for hundreds of years. Today, Ardglass is one of Northern Ireland’s busiest fishing ports and is home to an exciting selection of tasty lunch spots!
