Burr Point, the most easterly point in Ireland, is Burial Island, now a nesting site for terns but formerly a place of Danish Burial. Burr Point is located at longitude 5.43 degrees west, TWO km south of Ballyhalbert. Just above Burr point stands a disused Coast Guard Tower, which was in use in 1,863 and was one of twelve which made up the Donaghadee district.
