The East Ireland region
County Louth is the smallest county in Ireland, it is the 'wee county'. However it is the place of much myth, legend and history. It is named after the great Irish God, Lugh. There is much history around here, including the Vikings and Carlingford Lough.
Ruined monasteries, high crosses, dolmens, cairns, medieval castles, gates and walls all illustrate an awe-inspiring past. Louth is a place where thousands of years of history and myth combine with undulating valleys and mountains and where visitor attractions are all within easy reach. For over 6000 years people have lived here, and have left behind them rich legacies from bygone eras.
Louth offers a wide range of visitor attractions where leisure hours can be filled with both stimulating and relaxing pleasures. Whether the visitor requires a quiet break or demands an action packed holiday, the county abounds with interesting places to see and a myriad of things to do whether it's walking, cycling, angling, golf, riding or watersports.
The sweeping backdrop of the green Slieve Foye - the highest mountain in Louth - provides Carlingford with a magnificent setting of raw beauty. A renowned Heritage Town, Carlingford is brimming with remnants of its medieval origins. As well as enjoying an unrivalled location, the village provides a wide range of quality accommodation and restaurants.
Dundalk has strong connections with the mythical hero Cúchulainn. The town is also of Norman foundation and was a significant market town throughout the middle ages. The splendid County Museum is housed in a renovated 18th century warehouse.

"Perfect week in a beautiful location"
I stayed at the cottage for 1 week in August with my husband, 5 year old son and 65 year old father. It was perfect. We couldn't of asked for a better location to explore the surrounding countryside as well as Northern Ireland. We took advantage of the hiking trails and loved to wake up to the sounds of sheep in the morning. We will definitely be back. Sheila was a fantastic hostess and the cottage was cozy and well equipped. We did have to hike half way up the mountain for Internet but it was a beautiful view!!
Yes you did stay and delighted you enjoyed our beautiful scenery and old world
cottage, appreciate you coming and hope to see you soon again Sheila

"The perfect place for some peace and quiet with beautiful scenery incluced. ."
My wife and I stayed in Glenmore for a short break in April. It is a fantastic place if you are looking for some peace and quiet away from the everyday stresses and strains of life in general. The cottage is very quaint and full of character whilst having all the necessities for modernday living. It is situated in the heart of the Cooley mountains with excellent walks on your doorstep. Carlingford is only a 10 minute drive away and Newry approximately 20 minutes drive. Sheila (owner) is a wonderful lady and could not do enough for us. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage for a complete and relaxing break or holiday.
Thank you so much for spending your break in glenmore cottage and look forward to your next visit

"This was a really good family holiday one of the few we all remember"
The cottage in a superb location one hour from Dublin and One hour from Belfast and all in the middle of rolling hills and incredible scenery. My grandsons aged 6,4and 18 months were up at he crack of dawn to get out and walk over their farm and check the sheep. There was a bit of rain but it did not keep us in because all you needed was wellies and waterproofs. The cottage was warm and exceptionally comfortable. We had everything needed for four adults and three kids especially a good washing machine and clothes dryer.
All in All I would rate the cottage and the experience 11 out of 10 fantastic.
As Arnie says we will be back.
yOU WERE A PLEASURE TO HAVE,AND LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR NEXT VISIT

"peace and tranquility"
A beautiful traditional Irish cottage, homely, very well maintained.
It is very isolated so you really need a car, but that is the attraction
for me, I just chill for the week or two. We have been coming to glenmore
cottage now for 11 years, never missed a year infact a few times we have visited
twice in the year. Very welcoming owners, warm hearted just like their cottage.
All your home comforts are provided for you, log fire,central heating, home from home
I love it, I expect to be coming for many more years.
We appreciate your comments many thanks Patsy and Sheila
