As a large county with two cities, you might be forgiven for thinking that County Down is in danger of being swallowed up by growing urbanisation. Quite the contrary, if you travel a little out of Belfast and into smaller settlements like Saintfield and Portaferry, you’ll soon realise that County Down is in fact a region characterised by rich and unspoilt countryside. This contrast against the city reflects County Down’s status as a diverse and pleasing place to live.
Unsurprisingly, this makes it a fantastic location in which to enjoy a date with your eHarmony match. Here are just a few County Down dating ideas to spark your enthusiasm.
Castlewellan Forest Park
A park or set of gardens is usually a perfectly good setting for a date, but this Castlewellan institution is more than just your average open space. Set amid glorious trees and shrubbery, this forest includes a mile long lake and a huge variety of landscaping and natural treasures. The newest addition to the park is the Peace Maze – a symbolic maze representing Northern Ireland’s path to peace. A much more romantic and impressive location than you might expect; it would be a great place to take your loved one for the day.
Soak Seaweed Baths
For a County Down dating idea that is somewhat different, how about treating yourselves to a day at this Newcastle-based spa? Soak offers a range of treatments based around the long-lost tradition of using seaweed for its soothing and healing properties. If you’re intrigued enough, you could go for the big seaweed bath, or alternatively, try out one of the many holistic beauty treatments on offer. Before or after – the ‘Sip’ cafe is there to enhance the mood with a suitably soothing cup of tea. It’s always nice to be pampered - a day out here would ensure you both emerge feeling as good as new.
Clearsky Adventure Centre
For those looking for something a bit more original than your average dinner date – look to Clearsky Adventure Centre. Situated on the Strangford Lough, there are a whole host of activities you can partake in; from kayaking to archery; whether you are a hesitant beginner or a confident pro; the centre provides a fun and safe location to enjoy the water. A date here might be just the thing you need to get you feeling at ease in each other’s company.
Despite living in such a fantastic region, many County Down singles might feel they lack the time and opportunity to enjoy it. This is where a leading online dating site like eHarmony can be invaluable; we aim to put you in touch with highly compatible and well-suited singles - the chemistry is up to you.
