1. The best location for a Northern Irish staycation

We have the best of both worlds when it comes to location. We’re only a few miles from Belfast but fully immersed in the tranquillity of nature being situated on the edge of the historic Clandeboye Estate, near Bangor and at the heart of North Down.

Hotel exterior terrace

Surrounding the hotel are glens, forests, rivers, paths, meadows, great golf courses and picturesque beaches, all ready to be explored. For nature lovers, it’s beside gentle cycle routes, tranquil wooded trails and refreshing seaside walks.

For those who want to connect with their senses, the hotel is just a few minutes’ drive from Helen’s Bay beach, popular for sunrise and sunset swimming, paddle boarding and yoga. Everything you need to relax and reconnect.

Of course, you are close to city life too with just a 15-minute drive to Belfast’s bars, restaurants and tourist attractions. Not to forget, the hotel is right next to the vibrant cultural life of Bangor and North Down.

2. A unique hotel with stylish interiors and décor

Built around the 19th century Ballysallagh schoolhouse, Clandeboye Lodge is the epitome of style and relaxation. The carefully selected, eclectic mix of textures, patterns and finishes make the hotel a sanctuary of stylish interiors.

Our on-site renowned Coq & Bull brasserie is your gateway to the taste of Northern Ireland - perfect for foodies!

The food is locally sourced using artisan produce from the farms around the lodge. Grass-fed dairy from the fields of County Down. Vegetables dug from the soil of the Ards Peninsula. Organic chicken and beef reared in Northern Ireland’s rain-washed pastures. Fish freshly caught in the Irish Sea. The Coq & Bull loves local!
