Ardglass is a beautiful fishing village which overlooks the Irish Sea. Ardglass has been a fishing port for over two thousand years. Today it is the home port of thirty fishing vessels and it is a major fish marketing and processing centre.

Ardglass boasts a fabulous marina created in 1991.

Ardglass Castle, once the home of the Fitzgeralds, Earls of Kildare, is the clubhouse of  Ardglass Golf Club. The golf club restaurant and bar offers a fine a la carte meal or bar snacks and the golf course itself is something to be savoured and sampled.

Originally there were seven castles in Ardglass. Now Jordan's Castle, restored by antiquarian QC Francis Joseph Biggar when he bought it in 1911, is the only fortified tower that is more or less complete. It holds a central position in the village, overlooking the harbour. King's Castle, higher up the hill of Ardglass, was larger than Jordan's. The present castle there, incorporating some of the stonework of the original, was built by a rich merchant named Russell during the 19th century. It is now a nursing home.
