Port Patrick is a village in Dumfries and Galloway whose early growth was due to its importance within the local fishing industry. It was also a significant port in the 18th and 19th centuries, providing an important link for both passengers and cargo between Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Today Port Patrick is very popular with holidaymakers looking for stunning views and a bit of peace and quiet, and the village also attracts a lot of visitors for its annual 3-day folk music festival every September. A trek around Port Patrick’s coastline will lead to the discovery of its significant landmarks, including Killantringen Lighthouse, which first began operating in 1900 and is now fully automated, as well as the ruins of Dunskey Castle. The site stands on the top of the cliffs overlooking the Irish Sea and the castle itself dates back to the 14th century, but it had already fallen into ruin by 1700. The nearby Dunskey Estate however, is far from ruined; this perfectly preserved privately owned Edwardian castle is now rented out as an opulent hotel and wedding venue, as well as providing the ideal base for golf and fishing in the local area.
