Although the house is a terrace it feels private and is generally quiet

Within 3 mins walk Carlingford is a small, beautiful village which has several castles, pubs, several very good restaurants and 2 hotels. It is quaint and relaxed but lively too. See great website.

There is a local horse-riding school only a few minutes walk at the Ghan house. Hill walking is great and the top of the mountain 587 metres. There are signed easy walks, local mountain bike tracks, swimming or canoeing in the harbour. The local adventure centre offers more outdoor activities. The local stoney beach is fine to swim. There's a children's playground and local tennis courts nearby too. You can become a guest member of the local hotel's pool with sauna and jacuzzi at just 3 mins walk from the house; Four seasons.

This all without using a car or even walking too far!

By car then there are several golf courses nearby, day-trips to Newry for shop or cinema; the Mournes for bigger mountains or lovely Templetown (5 miles) for a sandy beach where there is a lifeguard in the summer.

You can also reach Dublin or Belfast for a day-trip (90 minutes drive) or historic Newgrange in county Louth. There's a tourist office 2 mins from the front door right in carlingford to help you.

The East Ireland region

Carlingford and the Cooley Peninsula, Co. Louth, Ireland, located just over an hour’s drive from Ireland’s two major cities of Dublin and Belfast. In 2008 Carlingford was honoured with the award of Ireland’s European Destination of Excellence.

For more information please do not hesitate to contact us.


Carlingford is a magical village, full of character and is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Ireland. Raided by the Vikings in the 8th & 9th Centuries, historical records show that the Vikings occupied Carlingford Lough. They may have used the sheltered harbour as a temporary base, though, this is unclear as no factual evidence, apart from the name Carlingford has been recorded.

With its history and narrow Medieval streets, lanes that lead to the harbour, majestic Slieve Foye mountain and the famous mountains of Mourne across the lough all combine to make Carlingford unique in Ireland. Today the inherent natural beauty can equally be appreciated on land or sea. Guided walking tours, horse trekking through the mountains - sailing - yacht charter - windsurfing - canoeing - water skiing can all be enjoyed here in Carlingford. Carlingford has several reputable restaurants - cosy pubs - great accommodation

Enjoy the spectacular panoramic views and listen to the wealth of myths and legends which makes Carlingford a unique holiday experience!. Carlingford is at the centre of much more too, within an hour's drive - Newgrange - famous 3000BC prehistoric burial chamber. Proleek Dolmen - Portal tomb. Visit Giant's Causeway - world heritage site, within two hour's drive.

"a very lovely & comfortable relaxed holiday stay"

We stayed in the cottage with our family (2 adults and 2 children) and we really loved the cottage and its location. It is very close to both the harbour and Carlingford village and yet in a quiet residential area. The cottage is very comfortable and we would certainly recommend the cottage to other families for a relaxed holiday.'
