This picturesque little quay is private. It ised to belong to the Leslies, a landed family who built Seaport Lodge, above the harbour, as a holiday home.
The Leslies, of Leslie Hill, County Antrim, were major landowners in the county.
Today the lodge, now derelict, and the harbour both belong to Seymour Sweeney.
Mr Sweeney also owns the former stables, familiarly known today as Sweeney's bar.
The bar-restaurant has been closed for many months, awaiting a new tenant, it is expected.
I'm in no doubt that this is effective, though, alas, it detracts from the beauty of the place.
