Thanks to Ards and North Down Borough Council in a project part funded under Priority 6 (LEADER) of the Northern Ireland Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs and the European Union, in 2022 some of the brass plaques in the Portaferry Heritage Trail were further developed to include audio stops. Helping the listener to discover the rich history of Portaferry on another level. Keep an eye out for bronze plaques at places of interest to find out more as you explore. Using the handsets or the QR codes along the way you’ll get to know some characters from the past, all with tales to tell.
