Twisel Brae

A short walk away

Only a short walk from Twisel Brae is the vibrant town of Holywood, which traces its roots back as far as the 7th century. Holywood rose to prominence as one of the Ulster ports and by the early 19th century the town had become popular as a resort for sea bathing.

Many wealthy Belfast merchants chose this area in which to build lavish homes for themselves and today, Holywood’s illustrious past is referenced in the remaining sites of architectural interest, including the ruins of the ancient Priory.

A vibrant and modern town centre plays host to a large array of independent clothing boutiques, gift shops, interiors emporiums and art galleries, each offering a singular shopping experience; while a stone’s throw away is the Holywood Exchange retail park housing anchor tenant IKEA amongst other high street giants.

Holywood’s gastronomic pedigree leaves nothing to be desired. From gourmet coffee to fine dining, local produce takes centre stage in many of the local eateries with freshly caught fish from Belfast Lough featuring prominently. Particularly worthy of a mention is the Michelin- recommended Fontana with its innovative yet informal menu.
