Carlingford is an attractive, unspoiled and yet vibrant medieval heritage village nestled in the foothills of the Cooley mountains. A wonderful array of well preserved medieval buildings forms the centre of the town complimented by a diverse range of shops, restaurants and traditional pubs.
With music around every corner a friendly welcome and good craic awaits. With its own Good Food Circle, Carlingford is the gourmet centre of the region and is famous for producing the best oysters in Europe.
For the climber Slieve Foy, the highest mountain in Louth at the rear of the village is waiting to be climbed. For the walker Carlingford is on the legendary Tain Way - national way marked walking route covering a 40km circuit of the Cooley Peninsula. Cycling is an alternative way of enjoying the charms of the area.
The Cooley Peninsula offers excellent horse riding facilities that will have you saddled up and ready to
go in no time.
A bird watcher’s paradise, Carlingford and The Cooley Peninsula are special protection areas for birds. With its varied landscape and habitats the area has interesting birds all year round.
Carlingford Lough and Dundalk Bay provide some of the best sea angling on the East Coast of Ireland with off-shore, rock and boat fishing on offer.
Golfing enthusiasts will be spoiled for choice. The peninsula offers two very challenging 18-hole courses at Greenore, a stone’s throw from Carlingford and Ballymascanlon.
Hands on cookery courses with guest chefs or painting workshops with local or guest artists are to be enjoyed on a year round basis.
