LEISURE ACTIVITES

The Comber area offers much to see and do including arts and crafts, cycling, horse riding, fishing, sailing, walking and golfing.

For days out, Castle Espie Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre is a great destination to see the diverse bird life of Strangford Lough. It is home to one of the largest collection of ducks, geese and swans in Ireland.

Exploris in Portaferry has recently received an investment of almost £2m and opened its doors once again to rave reviews. With its aquarium, famous touch tanks and Seal rescue and rehabilitian centre and new fully licensed restaurant, it has created a unique attraction on the shores of Strangford Lough.

There are numerous properties and 100’s of acres of land managed by the National Trust in the region. Mount Stewart, Castle Ward, and Rowallane Gardens are perfect for a little history, horticultural experience or just a relaxing walk through our beautiful countryside. Further afield the Crown Bar in Belfast, the Mourne Mountains and the Giant’s Causeway are other examples of other trust-managed properties.

For the more adventurous, why not hire a canoe and join one of a multitude of routes around Strangford Lough with over 800 islands to explore, or how about taking to the sky and being given a tour of the surrounding countryside in a light aircraft chartered from the Newtownards Airport.

DINING

Comber offers an extensive selection of dining options with many restaurants and cafes situated in the surrounding area.

We are located in one of the most fertile farming regions in the UK and Ireland and many of our surrounding restaurants benefit from top grade locally sourced fish, meat and vegetables.

We would recommend morning coffee or lunch in the beautifully restored Georgian House on Comber Square or try The Goose Comber for a relaxed tea and scone.

There are numerous award winning restaurants for that special night out. Try Sugar Cane Bistro on the town square for a relaxed friendly meal with a great seasonal menu.

The Old Schoolhouse offers a sophiscated menu designed by one of the provinces top chefs.

The Poachers Pocket is a very lively spot with a great bar and a modern bright restaurant that’s always buzzing.

Daft Eddy’s situated on beautiful Sketrick Island overlooking Strangford Lough offers stunning views for that long, lazy lunch.

And the historic Balloo House is a local institution serving fantastic locally sourced produce in both of its restaurants, the downstairs more informal while the upstairs restaurant offers a more intimate and refined dining experience.
