The townland of Portavogie is located on the south-east coast of the Ards Peninsula in County Down. It includes the village and harbour of the same name.
According to the PLACENAMESNI website, the name Portavogie comes from the Irish Port an Bhogaigh meaning port or place of the boggy area. To the west of the village the route across the peninsula is called Bog Road.
To the east the townland ends with this beach and the Irish Sea.
Some of the shellfish caught near Portavogie find their way on to the menu at The Quays restaurant beside the harbour. From personal experience I can recommend the “lobster trio”.
