Runs to 02 September 2017

Cockle Row Cottages open their doors each year to hundreds of families that visit over the summer season. Open just in time for Easter, these lovingly restored fisherman’s cottages host free themed entertainment from Easter Sunday to the first Sunday in September.

An array of Ulster Scots entertainment has been lined up between 2pm - 4pm each Sunday at the cottages.

Children will have the opportunity to join in on a range of activities including face painting, children’s crafts, balloon modelling and much more every weekend from 2-4pm, whilst adults can enjoy live music, craft fairs and Ulster-Scots music and dance in July and August in Association with the Ulster-Scots Agency.

Set within the picturesque Groomsport Harbour, Cockle Row Cottages are the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Bird enthusiasts can enjoy live video feeds which have been set up on Cockle Island giving visitors the opportunity to watch birds on two large screens, control cameras for a more interactive bird watching experience and this year even follow from home via the internet.

Open to the public daily from June, the cottages also stock a range of tourist and heritage information as well as a small gift shop full of local crafts and pottery. 

Whether it’s a weekend of free family fun or an afternoon away – Cockle Row Cottages are the perfect place for you!
