Located at the feet of the majestic Mourne Mountains on the shores of Strangford Lough, just 20 miles from Belfast. Lecale is the resting place of not only Saint Patrick but also Brigid and Columba. These connections mean it can boast an impressive early Christian heritage. The area was conquered by the Norman in the 12th Century and it is home to Ireland’s largest collection of tower-house castles.
