Killyleagh Off The Beaten Path
Killyleagh Castle. We discovered this one day as we were driving from the Nendrum Monastic site (another fabulous place to visit) to Castle Ward. The castle is privately owned and there are 2 self catering apartments that can be rented by the week, each in a tower. It is very non typical of Irish castles and is therefore very interesting. However, as it is privately owned, no visitors are allowed beyond the gates. The village of Killyleagh is very quaint with a traditional high street and a good pub.
