Where you’ll be

Ards, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

Little Sea Glass has seen many changes down the years. Our cottage terrace home was built in 1909 and sits at the rear of The Commons in the harbour town of Donaghadee, Co Down. It is about a three minute walk from the town centre and a two minute walk to the harbour and lighthouse.
It has stood witness to life in the bustling town for more than 110 years and has seen many things change, but many things stay just as they should be.

Donaghadee is the backdrop for the BBC's daytime TV crime series, Hope Street set in the fictional town of Port Devine.

Donaghadee now rivals other coastal holiday favourites in its bid to be the most dog friendly town in Northern Ireland. Almost all the pubs are dog friendly, even catering for the discerning pooch with treats and menus.
Even Gordon's Chemist is dog friendly - you can't beat that!
