The interpretive centre shows how the ancient tidal water wheel worked. It has wonderful views of beautiful Strangford Lough and is best visited by bike along the dedicated cycle path (Greenway) from Belfast to Comber, then past Castle Espie and its superb wildlife,

We used to go to Nendrum lots when we lived in Belfast - even on Christmas Day! We loved the peace, the views and the remoteness. It's also really interesting exploring the remains and imagining how the monks used to live.

The old monastic site has a very peaceful feel and there are sign boards describing the mpnastery that used to be there. Pleasant views of some of the inlets of Strangford Lough and also the old tidal mill. Watch out for high tides.
