Strangford Lough Viking Festival - Viking Feast with Storytelling & Music

The Old Court, Strangford, County Down, BT30 7NB
Strangford Lough Viking Festival


The gates will open at 7pm. Festivities will end at 10pm to allow for drinking up time and to facilitate catching the last ferries across the Narrows.  Just take a seat at our tables during The Feast alongside dozens of Viking characters and enjoy a night to remember. If you wish, you and your friends could dress appropriately for the occasion. A special prize will be awarded to the best dressed Viking guest. This will be a feast worthy of a Viking King.  The Chef and his team from the award-winning Cuan Restaurant will serve up typical 9th-century fare with a modern twist. Wash it down with a complimentary sample of mead and glass or two of beer or wine from the bar. Music and Viking-style entertainment will round off the experience.
