Seventh generation farmer’s son Duane Fitzsimons loves nothing more than bringing people around the area he calls home. This is no ordinary place though; it is the Home of Saint Patrick.

On these experiences you will visit places with legends going back 1600 years and more. Gently strolling you will visit places of battle and shipwreck, with a few good folklore tales thrown in.​

What is so unique about here? The burial place of Ireland's three patron saints, Lecale is a verdant green peninsula filled with cross country trails. Historically, it was defended by a ring of medieval Norman castles which still stand today.

Lecale is located the east coast at the feet of the majestic Mourne Mountains on the shores of Strangford Lough, one hour from Belfast.
