The Strangford and Downpatrick Roads meet at Bath Street, which leads into the village. Here the part-time Visitor Information Centre is worth visiting.

Open during the summer months and manned by volunteers, there is an extensive exhibition of Ardglass's marine heritage. You can obtain maps of the area, heritage trail maps, and information about Ardglass at the centre.

You can also pick up information on events which occur throughout the year in Ardglass. Upstairs you will find the Gerry O'Shea Community Centre which is used by the community for arts, crafts and other community activities.

Bath Street was laid out in the mid 1800s and is so named as it led to the town's baths. The bathing water varied from sea water or fresh water, either hot or cold. Ardglass was noted for the purity of its air and waters as far back as the 1700s!
