The Province of Leinster region

Welcome to Carlingford and Mourne

Carlingford & Mourne is just an hour's drive from Belfast and Dublin. It is spectacularly beautiful. It's mountainous and sea landscape is steeped in mystery, history and mythology and provided the inspiration for The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis. Its mythology tells of the resting place of the giant Finn McCool, its lands embrace the spirit of the fierce Celtic warrior Cuchulainn and it is home to the faint whisperings of the last leprechauns of Ireland. Here you will find giant's graves, pre-historic sites, dolmens and Norman castles.

It is situated along the coastal route to the Giants Causeway and less than an hour's drive to the 5000 year old tomb at Newgrange. It is the ideal base for you seek a true experience of Ireland and its culture.

The mountain ranges of Mourne, Cooley, and Gullion, beckon you to explore their splendour on foot, bicycle or horseback, on a variety of looped walks and cycle paths. Local adventure centres offer you rock climbing, abseiling canoeing, kayaking, sailing and windsurfing in the waters of Carlingford Lough and the Irish Sea. You can charter Lough cruises for angling, or bird-watching. Day coach trips are available to the historical and scenic sites and routes. If its golf you want, there are ten golf courses, parkland and links in the region.

The area has been awarded the prestigious “European Destination of Excellence” an imprimatur to the visitor of quality and a real cultural experience.

Belfast -

Travel north and in little over an hour you can be in the heart of the city with great shopping, great shows and great places to see.

Why not investigate the human stories behind the RMS Titanic or even a black taxi tour and follow the history of 'the troubles', marvel at the murals living history or go beyond the walls and be enthralled by the history that is Crumlin Road Gaol. Then if time is on your side you can travel further afield and perhaps visit some of our great National Trust properties: Castle Ward, Mount Stewart, Florence Court or the Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.?

Tours & Excursions

There are many exciting tours in and around the city of Belfast to help you open up and explore this great treasure chest. You can begin with an open topped city bus tour or perhaps take a Value Cabs city tour; set off with a purpose to seek out CS Lewis and source his childhood inspiration for the Chronicles of Narnia.

Dublin -

travel south and once again you can be in Dublin city in just over an hour.

From her humble beginnings as a Viking trading port to a walled medieval city and then - in a glorious century of expansion - to an elegant Georgian metropolis with wide streets, gracious squares and great houses, neatly bordered by its two canals, whatever way you choose to experience her, Dublin is a city that will capture your heart!?

There are many ways to see Dublin, on foot, sampling the sights, sounds, and tastes of the city on the go. Others prefer to take a less energetic approach and avail of one of the many hop-on-hop-off tour buses that criss-cross the city. For many their tour of Dublin is just part of an Irish experience that takes in other parts of this beautiful country.



We're convinced you'll love it here at Old Essmore Cottage. But see for yourself what lies in store.

Carlingford, less than 5 minutes drive with its wide range of bars and restaurants is full of medieval history and charm

Review 1-7 of 7

24 Jan 2015


"Very Enjoyable - wonderful treatment"

The house was very comfortable for our family of four adults. Every room in the house was tastefully furnished and made us immediately feel at home. The sitting room was cozy, dining room very comfortable and the kitchen was exceptionally well stocked. Gerard (owner) was there to greet us even though we had a late evening arrival. He had Christmas decorations set up inside and outside the cottage, Christmas music was playing and there was a choice of hundreds of CDs from a server ((sitting room, dining room and sunroom are wired for music). A lovely meal was waiting for us and the refrigerator was stocked with milk, orange juice, etc. Definitely would recommend Essmore Cottage to anyone considering a vacation in this part of Ireland. We enjoyed the nearly villages of Omeath and Carlingford and the scenic drives and walks. We look forward to staying again during the summer months to enjoy the sunroom and gardens.
