Things To Do

Duncannon Fishing Village


Duncannon is a quaint little fishing village which is overlooked by the Star shaped fort at the top of the village. Within the village there are two bar/restaurants; Roches Traditional Family Bar and the Strand Tavern, both of which are open daily serving top quality food, all locally sourced. 

At the other end of the village in the Fort Conan Hotel, there is a lovely café called The Wild Rose, serving  breakfasts and lunches all day. At the entrance of the beach there is a new Coffee shop, Gralinn, serving delicious coffees and home-bakes.  There is also a  pizzeria/chipper  ‘Off The Hook’ and for a special night out we highly recommend Aldridge Lodge. However, it is extremely popular and booking is essential.  We also recommend Dunbrody Country House Hotel owned by celebrity chef Kevin Dundon and his wife Catherine. Again, booking is essential.

There is currently a new shop under construction which is hoped to be open for the 2022 season, however there is a large Centra shop in Ramsgrange (3Kms) which has ATM, post office and anything else you may need.   

Parking is currently allowed on the beach, however during the high season the beach warden will advise on the best place to park due to tides etc.  Duncannon also has an active harbour and you can take a stroll down there and watch the fishermen land their catch.

Hooked Kitesurfing school offers the chance to learn a new sport in the water at Duncannon Beach.
