Killinchy is a townland and small village in County Down. It is two miles inland from the western shores of Strangford Lough in the Borough of Ards. It is situated in the townland of the same name, the civil parish of Killinchy and the historic barony of Dufferin. The village sits on a hill overlooking Strangford Lough. The nearby settlement of Balloo is treated as part of Killinchy. Sketrick Castle is located near Killinchy and is estimated to date back to the 15th century. The Annals of the Four Masters record the capture of the castle in 1470. It was intact until the end of the 19th century when a storm demolished much of it. In 1957 a stone subterranean passage was discovered.
