Ringhaddy (from Irish Rinn an Chadaigh, meaning "point of the covenant"[1]) is a townland on the shores of Strangford Lough, County Down, Northern Ireland. It is in the civil parish of Killinchy and the historic barony of Dufferin.[1]

It is the home of Ringhaddy Daffodils and Ringhaddy Cruising Club. The area has become very popular for diving, due to the sinking of The Alastor, a ship which sank in 1946 due to a fire on board.
