Donaghadee Travel guide
Donaghadee : Michelin's recommendations
Picturesque winding streets lead to the parish church built in 1641. The huge harbour, now full of pleasure boats and the starting point for trips on Belfast Lough, was developed in 1820 to receive mail ships, later transferred to Larne (in 1849). From the 16C to 19C, Donaghadee to Portpatrick was the shortest (34km) and most popular sea route between Ireland and Scotland.
