Ards Upper

Ards Upper is a barony in County Down.[1] It lies on the southern half of the Ards Peninsula in the east of the county, with the Irish Sea to its east and Strangford Lough to its west. It is bordered by two other baronies: Ards Lower to the north; and Lecale Lower just across the mouth of Strangford Lough to the south.[1]

The barony of Ards Upper was created in 1851 when the barony of Ards was split into two, the other part being Ards Lower.[2]
