The Cuan Facade


Strangford is a picturesque and historic coastal village at the mouth of Strangford Lough, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Less that an hour from Belfast and approximately two hours from Dublin, Strangford is the perfect base to explore and enjoy this wonderful location, rich in beauty, culture and history as well as delicious fresh, seasonal and local food and drink. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the fresh air whether that be on a sandy beach, a coastal or woodland walk, on a championship golf course, or indeed out on the lough! The National Trust properties of Castle Ward, Mount Stewart and Rowallane are all close by and we are in St Patrick country. He landed a few miles away and founded his first church up the road at Saul. Indeed his grave can be visited at the Downe Cathedral where you will also find the St Patrick's Visitor Centre.

The Cuan itself has been at the heart of Strangford for over 200 years and has long been known as a centre for good hospitality. Our new restaurant has established itself an excellent reputation with the menu constantly changing depending on what local specialties are in season. Seafood is a specialty! It has an informal atmosphere where all the family will be made welcome. the friendly bar is the perfect place to relax and unwind with friends and locals.

Upstairs we have nine luxury en-suite bedrooms, each with their own unique design, but all with the same level of comfort and features such as free WiFi, television, Nespresso coffee machine and handmade Irish toiletries.

We are happy to welcome family groups for special occasions and can help tailor their stay with us. A number of wedding venues are nearby and we are a popular choice with guests. Throughout the year we offer one or two night breaks and look forward to offering some themed breaks to guests.
