With Strangford Lough considered one of the most important marine sites in Europe, its no surprise that Portaferry is a water sports paradise, and the location for Northern Irelandís only aquarium, Exploris. This is an interpretative centre for Strangford Lough and the Irish Sea, giving a fascinating insight into sealife and habitat for the lough shore. A recent development to Exploris is the Seal Sanctuary, where seals are brought in for rehabilitation and are released back into the wild when they make a full recovery.

There's loads more to see and do in the area - so much in fact that we're still trying to compile this page! In the meantime though take a look at the Out & About Gallery which might inspire you with some ideas!

Also, take a look at the following useful links:
