About the Pub

A compact real ale pub, on the county Down coast, yards from Belfast Lough. The "Duck" has sold real ale for many years, and it has been CAMRA NI Pub Of The Year twice. Three ales are usually on from Inveralmond, Hilden, St. Austell, and Shepherd Neame. The house beer, Dirty Duck Ale is brewed by Hilden. They have a great collection of pump clips, and plastic ducks. The food is highly recommended and is available in the bar downstairs and in the restaurant upstairs. It has a beer garden to which a new roof has been added to enhance outside drinking and dining. There is a beer festival every summer and there is an impressive view over Belfast Lough and a corner celebrating locally born golfing hero Rory McIlroy.
