Conlig

This village is off the busy road to Newtownards, 3km from Bangor. Before the dual carriageway was laid, the main road used to run through the village street, but visitor traffic is now largely limited to golfers en route to the two 18 hole championshipcourses of Clandeboye Golf Club. The most challenging of North Downs six golf clubs, Clandeboye, attracts top class golfers and sporting greats including World Class Formula One racing driver, Eddie Irvine, who comes from Conlig. There are lovely walks in the wooded countryside around the village. You may even catch a glimpse of antlered deer grazing among the woodland plants. They are part of a herd long established in the neighbouring Clandeboye Estate.
