Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A stroll along the cobbled sea walk and out to the lighthouse gives you a good view of this small, friendly coastal town.
It's peaceful, pleasant and uncluttered.
While there isn't a huge amount to do here, the sea walk is a highlight - fresh air, plenty to look at with the old remnants of a once-vibrant fishing industry and the lighthouse itself standing watch.
It can get a bit windswept when the breeze picks up.

Whatever the weather no visit to this pretty, charming town is complete without a walk along the harbour to enjoy the lovely views and the sea in all its moods from tranquil to stormy. Enjoyable without a doubt on a sunny day under a blue sky but if you venture out at dusk there is more to see in addition to the boats in the harbour. On a recent walk, when we were by the lighthouse, we saw two bats flying around, darting here and there as they had their supper. We had a great opportunity for a photograph as the reflections of the lights and pastel colours of the buildings on the front were so picturesque. The tide was low and as we walked towards the town we saw a heron hunting in the shallow waters, which was an unexpected surprise.

Great for a walk to the lighthouse. Parking beyond the harbour in a culture de sac. Lovely place to eat opposite at Pier 36. Worth a trip

VEry nice place to start my walk around the town. Would imagine that it would be very blustery from time to time. The lighthouse itself was locked, however you can walk up to it and around the area. HArbour itself was quiet today and thankfully the lifeboat was in place.

Loving the Donaghadee Rocks at the Harbourside along the pier towards the Donaghadee Lighthouse. So many rocks and some talented artists who have painted them, it looks like everyone in the village have played there part and probably alot of tourists visiting the area and there's even a Facebook Page dedicated to it. I'll have to paint some myself for the next time I visit the area.

Parking can be an issue when the sun is out... but the walk along the bay to the harbour is second to none... then drop into the cabin for a proper ice cream - no posh flavours... with sauce at a price that will not break the bank...
