Welcome to Donaghadee

Donaghadee is the closest point to Scotland; indeed on most days the Scottish coast is visible to the naked eye. This was a critical factor in the development of the town and up until the middle of the 19th century the town served as the major point of entry from the GB mainland to the island of Ireland.


Today the town offers a rich blend of historic and modern. The Norman motte, the harbour, Grace Neill’s Pub (reputedly the oldest pub in Ireland) and the parish church are evidence of the history of the town while the range of shops and eating places reflect modern day living.


This web site is sponsored by the Donaghadee Community Development Association with support from Ards and North Down Borough Council – Making Donaghadee “A Better Place to Work, to Live and to Visit”.
