The East Ireland region
Carlingford is located on the east coast of Ireland in Co. Louth.
Should you wish to venture further afield, Dundalk and Newry are a 15~20 minute drive away. Enjoy a drive along the banks of the Lough and Newry Canal to The Quays and Buttercrane Shopping Centres in Newry. Dundalk has Ireland’s largest indoor sports facility and ice-rink. A fun night at the dog racing track is promised with Ireland’s first all-weather horse racing track.
County Louth and County Down (on the northern shore of the Lough) have a host of interesting towns, villages and attractions to be explored.
Plenty to do what ever the weather!
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.
An innovative calendar of events, ranging from regattas, craft and food fairs, hill walking festivals, to Georgian banquets, takes place in Carlingford on an annual basis.
