W5 - Science and Fun for the Family

Spread out over three levels of floor space, the interactive activities at W5 are excellent and well worth a visit by people of all ages. There are various themes, exhibitions and demonstrations through out the year.

Ballynoe Stone Circle

The Stone Circle is situated in the small hamlet of Ballynoe 2.5 miles (4 km) south of Downpatrick, County Down.
