Millisle, County Down

Review of Millisle by Elizabeth on March 15th, 2012
Millisle has grown from a small village by the sea to a small town with new housing developments. There are plenty of organisations for children, youth and adults alike - lots of church groups, a thriving football club, two local bars, British Legion, Orange Hall and a Youth Forum. The local Community Association hold public events throughout the year as do the other organisations. The primary school is 'second to none' and has a enthusiastic Principal and staff as well as a 'Friends' group who organise events for the children. Millisle is by the sea and has a number of beaches, a beachpark with slipways for launching small boats, a lagoon for swimming, a new playpark for children and 'trim trail' exercise equipment for adults. The Community Garden is a peaceful retreat by the seashore where you can sit and relax. We also have an excellent 'fish and chip' shop. So don't just drive through - stop and take a walk around - I love it here in Millisle.
