Portavogie (from Irish Port a' Bhogaigh, meaning 'harbour of the bog') is a village, townland and fishing port in County Down, Northern Ireland.

It lies within the Ards and North Down Borough and is the easternmost settlement in Ireland. It had a population of 2,122 people in the 2011 Census.


The town has a modern harbour, housing a large fishing fleet catching mainly prawns and herrings. Most evenings there are fish auctions on the quays. Three murals on the exterior of the local school celebrate the history of the fishing industry in the town.
