Ardglass 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.
Today Ardglass is the home port of thirty vessels, and is a major fish marketing and processing centre.
Fish and prawns to the value of £4-5 million are landed in the port each year, most of it processed locally before shipping to the large cities of Europe.
Ardglass Golf Course is an 18 hole links course with many stunning views and excellent unique golf holes. The course hugs the coastline, with no fewer than 8 holes where the Irish Sea coastline comes into play. "The view from the elevated 12th tee, with the backdrop of the Irish Sea and Mourne Mountains is to die for."
