Dog walking at Mount Stewart

A dog on a lead with its owner

Mount Stewart has always been a place where dogs can enjoy themselves. Dogs lived here alongside the Londonderry family, and we want to continue the tradition of welcoming responsible dog owners whilst ensuring that all of our visitors are able to enjoy a day out the way they want.

Buildings, including house, shop, and tea room

We welcome visitors and their dogs to Mount Stewart, however only assistance dogs are welcome in our buildings. All dogs must be kept on a short lead at all times and we ask that you do not leave your dog unattended.
You can find freshly filled water bowls outside our reception area, courtyard, and opposite the house to keep your dog hydrated while on the move.
We have dog waste bags and bins placed around the estate. Please clean up after your dog to protect other visitors, dogs, and the wildlife at Mount Stewart.
Dogs in cars
Please do not leave your dog in your car unless you’re quickly popping in to use the facilities. On a warm day the car park becomes very hot. If a dog is left in a car and appears distressed our policy is to inform the USPCA.
