Our top dog-friendly places in Northern Ireland
We welcome dogs on leads into all your favourite National Trust places across Northern Ireland including Mount Stewart, Castle Ward and the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre. You can also explore the Divis and the Black Mountain walking trails with your dog and enjoy spectacular panoramic views over Belfast.
Dogs will also enjoy wandering through the meadow and woodland walks at Minnowburn, Downhill Demesne or Castle Coole. Dogs love playing on the sand, so why not take your four-legged friends for a walk on the beach at Portstewart Strand or Murlough Nature Reserve?
There are also a number of places where your dog can go wild. Let your dog off their lead at the training area at Mount Stewart (opposite car park 2) or at the dog exercise area at Rowallane Garden.
Our dog-friendly cottages are also perfect for planning a holiday when your four-legged friend is an equally important guest. You don't have to leave your dog behind when you holiday at home with a stay at Crom or at Potter's Cottage at Castle Ward. Nestled on the shores of Strangford Lough, your dog is bound to love roaming around this quaint single storey cottage in a corner of the Old Castle Ward demesne.
