Go there and see the remnants of life gone by, people still live here so it is a fluid experience well worth finding. Continue on along the coast to find more treasures of national cultural interest you will never forget your visit.

I loved this little fishing village with white thatched cottages. Like stepping back in time, so simply.

Had a lovely walk along the shore at Kearney, very peaceful and tranquil and full of interesting things along the way. Definitely worth a visit if you are an outdoor person.

This is owned by the National Trust, all houses can only be rented. It is preserved as a typical fishing village of long ago.

We spent an unhurried afternoon in Kearney on a beautiful July afternoon, the children exploring rock pools and the adults strolling along the coastal path. Wild flowers, birds, butterflies, the lulling sound of the waves ... And, of course, the lovely cottages of Kearney itself....More

Our B&B host told us about a quaint village nearby. Kearney is so beautiful and peaceful. A lovely place to walk or sit and listen to the waves and the birds.

Another visit to Kearney, there's always something new to see. No matter the weather, the scenery is spectacular. Lots of walking, peace and quiet, fresh air, what more could you ask for?

Stopped at Kearney en route to Portaferry. A local advised that the village had recently been used as a film set for the BBC drama “My Mother and Other Strangers”. A very quiet and picturesque village, well maintained by the National Trust.
