Killard National Nature Reserve (Strangford Lough)
Killard National Nature Reserve is on the Killard Peninsula where Strangford Lough meets the Irish Sea. It’s in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you can enjoy the bird life and seals while walking along the rugged shoreline with grassy paths and sandy bays ideal for picnics.
The entrance to Killard National Nature Reserve is at Mill Quarter Bay on Killard Road, which is a scenic loop road off the A2 between Strangford and Ardglass. There is a long layby for parking on the road.
part of the site management is grazing by livestock and ponies so dogs are not allowed
