Ringhaddy Sound

Tides and tools
Overview





Ringhaddy Sound is located on Strangford Lough’s western shore to the west of Islandmore, on the northeast coast of Ireland. It is a beautiful and popular mooring ground with some club visitor pontoons.

The Sound offers complete protection from all conditions. However wind against tide in a strong northerly, and to a lesser extent southerly, maybe a little uncomfortable. The enclosed stretch of water provides shelter sailing in all weather, all tides and has ample marks to make daylight navigation straightforward.
