Could Strangford be any more adorable? There aren’t many coastal villages in Ireland which come close to its idyllic little streets and charming harbour. If you had to design your perfect seaside location it would have to be Strangford. Mind you, Portaferry across the Narrows, isn’t far behind.

But today we are in the village where tiny houses with lough views go for mad money. And where there’s money there’s usually somewhere decent to eat. Strangford is blessed with three good restaurants including the Artisan, the Lobster Pot and the Cuan. The last one has been transformed in recent years. Gone is the smell of old frying oil, tired interiors and mediocre food. Instead, there is an attractive bar with a cosy room, a very atmospheric restaurant dining room and a takeaway next door. And the food is good.
