Spectacular scenery, walks, beaches and views across Belfast Lough

With tranquil walks through peaceful meadows and wooded glens and a stunning waterfall, Crawfordsburn Country Park provides a relaxing natural retreat.

Head for Ulster’s most popular country parks to relish its 3.5km of lovely beaches and riverside rambles that form part of the North Down Coastal Path.

With two excellent beaches, spectacular scenery and views across Belfast Lough, tranquil walks through peaceful meadows and wooded glens and a stunning waterfall, Crawfordsburn Country Park provides a relaxing natural retreat.

Please be aware that sections of the North Down Coastal Path follow private roads.  Please respect the Highway Code when walking, cycling or running along these sections where residential traffic will have right of way. Northern Ireland has very few public rights of way and therefore in many areas walkers can only enjoy countryside walks because of the goodwill and tolerance of local landowners.  In the interests of your own safety please be respectful when using the area for recreational purposes.

Located a short distance from Grey Point Fort is Crawfordsburn Country Park. During the Second World War the park accommodated a temporary US Army camp. You can still see the beautiful Crawfordsburn House, now converted into apartments, which once housed some of the men.
