Address National Trust - Castle Ward Strangford, Downpatrick BT30 7BA, UK

An 18th century building owned by the National Trust, Castle Ward overlooks the beautiful Strangford Lough, a few miles from Downpatrick.

A collection of buildings from several eras, Castle Ward began in 1570 and includes a castle with several towers, stables, a Victorian laundry, a sawmill, a working mill, a Gothic facade, various outbuildings and a large walled garden. Once owned by the Ward family, the estate reverted to the Government of Northern Ireland in 1952. The site was also the scene of an abortive IRA bombing in 1973. A major tourist site, Castle Ward now welcomes history buffs and Game of Thrones fans alike.
