Charm, history & character, just a stone’s throw from Strangford Lough

Balloo House is a charming country pub and restaurant just a stone’s throw from the tranquil shores of Strangford Lough. With a 400-year history in hospitality, Balloo House is well known for its fine selection of fresh local seafood, dry–aged steaks, pub grub classics and warm welcome, and is proud to be the only pub in Northern Ireland to be awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand.

Upstairs you'll find our atmospheric grill restaurant, Overwood at Balloo. With its sumptuous restaurant, private bar and fire pit cocktail terrace, Overwood is also the perfect venue for private/corporate dining and intimate, bespoke weddings.
