Cloghy[1][2] (/ˈklɔːx/ KLAWKH-ee; from Irish: Clochaigh, meaning 'stony place'),[1][2] also spelt Cloughey[3] or Cloughy,[2] is a small village and townland in County Down, Northern Ireland. It lies on the east (Irish Sea) coast of the Ards Peninsula, in the Ards and North Down Borough. It had a population of 1,075 people in the 2011 Census.[4]

Places of interest

  • Kirkistown Castle, an impressive tower house built in 1622 by Roland Savage. It post-dates the Plantation but is fully in the late medieval tower-house tradition. Parts of the bawn wall survive with three-quarter round flanker towers at the angles. The tower was remodelled in gothic style in 1800. The Environment and Heritage Service opened it to the public for the first time in 2001.
  • The nearby South and North Rocks have always been deemed two of the most deadly hazards off the coast of the Ards Peninsula. In the 25 years between 1875 and 1900, 75 boats and 29 men were lost.
