St Patrick's Trail


We took our Erasmus visitors out on a trail to discover the life of St Patrick.

The day began with a visit to Scrabo Tower for an amazing view of Strangford Lough.

From there we travelled along the coast to Portaferry where we crossed the Lough to Strangford.

It was then hotfoot to Castleward where we visited the basement and iconic tower synonymous with Game of Thrones.

In the afternoon we visited the site of Patrick’s first church at Saul before heading to Down Cathedral and St Patrick’s grave, Down Museum and the St Patrick Centre.

Hopefully our guests were a little more aware of St Patrick’s story by the end of the day.
