          A Parish and seaport in the Barony of Lecale and County of Down, 103 miles from Dublin, 23 from Belfast, and 6 miles S.E. of Downpatrick. It is pleasantly situated on a high promontory on the coast. It was at one time a place of considerable importance, and retains, as monuments of its ancient grandeur, five old castles. Ardglass is the most important herring fishing station in Ireland. During the fishing season, which lasts from May till October, from three to four hundred boats may be seen ion the harbour. The value of the herring caught yearly ranges from £20,000 to £30,000, in one season it reached as much as £60,000. It contains about 800 inhabitants, a large proportion of whom are engaged in the fishing trade. The places of worship are the Parish Church, the Presbyterian Church, the Methodist Chapel, and the Roman Catholic Chapel. There are two National Schools. A light railway from Downpatrick to Ardglass is in contemplation, and if this is constructed the herring fishery will be greatly developed
