    The Vikings - A Brief History in County Down

    The Vikings first came to Ireland as raiders but began to settle here by the ninth century. In the south of the country they founded the towns of Dublin, Waterford, Wexford, Cork and Limerick.

    Archaeologists have found evidence for these southern towns, but no traces of settlements, and relatively few Viking objects, in the north of Ireland. However, the name ‘Strangford’ is a Viking word, referring to the strong currents in the Narrows of the Lough.

    The fresh daffodils and colourful crocuses are finally flowering, the tiny lambs are frolicking in our fields and it’s beginning to feel a lot more like Spring is finally in the air. With the impending Spring and longer days, my mind turns to the wonderful celebrations that involve bringing people together to enjoy fabulous food, good company and making great memories.

    Rainy Day Things To Do in Visit Mourne

    It has been known to rain in these parts from time to time and spills from the sky can happen quite suddenly. That said, while you should always prepare for showers, full length rainy days are rare. You will almost always get the chance to get out and into much of the great outdoors that Visit Mourne has to offer. But if it does decide to pour down for the day, well we have that covered too.
