Quoile Yacht Club
Invitation to Local Paddlers

Tucked away in sheltered waters at the southern end of Strangford Lough and the mouth of the Quoile River, you will find Quoile Yacht Club.  Situated between Downpatrick and Strangford Village it is one of the Lough’s hidden gems. 


QYC has a proud 60 year history, encompassing people from all walks and stages of life with a love of the water.  Where people meet, share experiences and stories, passing on knowledge and skills.


It boasts some of the best facilities on the Lough, with two slipways, a 100 metres of pontoon, accessible year round and on all tides.  We have changing and showering facilities, a camping area and secure parking. 


The Clubhouse stands right on the water’s edge with stunning lough views from every vantage point. It has a bar and comfy lounge with an outside patio and bbq area overlooking the water

We would like to highlight our club and its facilities to the paddle sport community and invite you to visit our beautiful club, with the aim of developing partnerships with interested clubs and groups and to encourage regular kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding from here.


This is the perfect venue from which to begin and end your journey as you explore the beauty of Strangford Lough, its Islands and wonderful wildlife.
