Castle Espie Wildfowl and Wetland Centre

Castle Espie Wetland Centre is set on the shores of the stunning Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland where almost the entire population of Light-bellied Brent Geese reside during the winter months. Hides and nature walks allow you to get close to wild birds and the collection of endangered birds from around the world. This is a tranquil and friendly centre for all the family where you can find out more about Irish wetlands, and how you can save them for future generations.
