Portaferry lies at the end of the Ards Peninsula, and from here a ferry plies across "The Narrows," the site of a spectacular tidal torrent four times a day as the water sweeps in and out between the Irish Sea and Strangford Lough.
On the opposite shore is Strangford, an old scenic fishing village. Designated an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" and near several SSSI's (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) and historical relics, there is much to see and do nearby.
Fiddler's Green is a Popular Bar situated in the central square of historic Portaferry offering live music, a wide range of draft beers and the friendly atmosphere of local Irish Pub. Fiddler's Green is approved by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
