Castle Ward is an 18th-century gothic mansion with sweeping grounds overlooking the sea at Strangford Lough, located in County Down, Northern Ireland. Within the estate, you’ll find an exotic sunken garden and paths that wind their way through woodland and to the shores of the Lough. Before your visit, you'll want to check out the list of activities the Castle hosts including walking tours, cycling trails, horse riding, and much more. Game of Thrones fans might recognise Castle Ward as Winterfell in the popular TV series and the Castle is known to plan events that embrace the series, including the Winterfell Festival.
If you're travelling from Belfast, Castle Ward is about 45 minutes via car or about 2 hours via train.
