Cuan Cottage Pet Friendly County Down Northern Ireland Family friendly Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage for romantic breaks in Portaferry, County Down, Ireland


Cuan Cottage is a charming self catering holiday cottage, situated in Portaferry on the shores of Strangford Lough, in County Down. We've provided all you could want in your home from home, and it's the perfect spot for an escape!

Cuan Cottage is a charming 4 star self catering cottage. Situated in Portaferry village, with the sea front, ferry, lively pubs, shops and cafes all on it's doorstep, yet tucked quietly away on a narrow street running down to the marina.

This 100 year old, stone built, fisherman's cottage sits on a narrow street running down to the marina. The cottage consists of a cosy living room, comfortable master bedroom, a second bedroom furnished with bunk beds and a well equipped kitchen/dining room, stocked with oil, condiments and all the basics such as tea and coffee, and including a Welcome Pack to get you started! Outside we have our sheltered, south facing cottage garden, complete with garden furniture, barbeque and hammock - an ideal suntrap for lazing in, after an active day out and about!

The island-studded Strangford Lough, is the largest sea lough in the UK & Ireland, covering 80 square nautical miles. It is approached from the Irish Sea through the fast-running tidal 'Narrows' which open out into more gentle waters. The Viking invaders who arrived here in their long boats through the fast flowing 'Narrows', bestowed the name Strangfj'rthr or "place of strong currents". By contrast, the calmer waters of the main, shallow basin further north gave this Lough its old Irish name, Lough Cuan, meaning "harbour" or "sheltered haven". It's the old Irish name for the lough that proved the inspiration for Cuan Cottage, which we think of as our "sheltered haven", away from the pressures of modern life, and we're sure you'll love it whether you visit for a romantic get-away, a family holiday, an active break or just to let your hair down and enjoy the craic!

This relaxing home is only yards from the marina, the ferry and the excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs of the village. Enjoy the relaxing charm of Portaferry or cross the Lough and savour the atmosphere of Strangford village. The Ferry sails every half hour, every day of the year (except Christmas Day) providing a link with South Down, Downpatrick and the Mournes.

You may be an outdoors fanatic, revelling in the water sports, fishing, nature, beaches and many activities offered in the area, you may love to roam the countryside and cycle the deserted lanes, or to play the many local golf courses. Or you may simply love to sit out on the seafront, or outside one of our great local pubs, enjoying a pint 'of the black stuff', and watching the world go by! Whatever your choice, Cuan Cottage offers a haven of comfort and warmth to return to.

Alternatively, why not just close over the curtains and settle into the sofa with an old film? Or pick up a good book, pour a cold glass of wine and forget your troubles, lazing in the garden. We think we've provided all you could want in your home from home, and we hope you choose Cuan Cottage for a great break, and come back again and again!
