Holiday Cottages in Ardglass, County Down, Northern Ireland
Self Catering Holiday Accommodation
Ardglass is a small town in on the sea. It has been a fishing port for over two thousand years - during a period when the Celts developed it from nomadic hunting and fishing to a sound agricultural and trading economy. The sheltered deep-sea inlet of Ardglass grew into a fishing port to the point where, 150 years ago, some four or five hundred sail powered craft habitually crowded into the harbour, fishing during the summer months for herring and in the winter for whiting and cod.
Towards the end of the 19th century larger steam drifters replaced these tiny craft. Today Ardglass is the home port of thirty diesel powered vessels, and is a major fish marketing and processing centre. Fish and prawns to the value of £4 or £5 million are landed in the port each year, most of it processed locally before shipping to the large cities of Europe.
