Holywood, Co. Down

This prosperous satellite town of Belfast has lots to offer the visitor including excellent restaurants, cafes along the busy main street and interesting historical sites including the 13th century clock tower and Holywood Motte, which is an earthen mound located off Brook Street in the centre of the town which was almost certainly a 12th century Norman motte. 

The nearby Ulster Folk and Transport Museum (+44 (0) 28 9042 8428, open all year) is an impressive display of engines, coaches and is the home of the Irish railway collection.  The folk part of the park takes visitors on a journey around a typical 19th century Ulster town including farmhouses, a school and a corner shop. 

Golfers will enjoy a round at Royal Belfast Golf Course (+44 (0) 28 9042 8165), which is reputedly one of the finest 18 hole parkland settings in the game, or there is the choice of Holywood Golf Course (+44 (0) 28 9042 3135), established in 1904.
