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.

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.

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.
