Day 5:

Portaferry Castle - Exploris Aquarium


Have a walk in Portaferry, a small town on the North East coast of Ireland, at the tip of the Ards Peninsula, and visit its 16th century castle. The ruins of Portaferry Castle loom above the town. There are fine Georgian buildings in the town square, including a Market house, now used as a community centre.

Near the center of the town is Exploris, Ulster's impressive new Irish Sea marine life centre and aquarium. The aquarium features tanks, audio visual and interactive displays. While the aquarium has been involved in the rehabilitation of seals since 1989, the new purpose built Seal Sanctuary opened in 2000.

2nd night in Belfast.
