BALTRAY

The tranquil village of Baltray sits on the north side of the River Boyne estuary.  Here you can view shallow lagoons, which are a haven for rare birds including little terns and little egrets.  Louth Nature Trust runs a conservation project on Baltray beach each year from May to August to protect the nests of the little terns. You will also find the remains of a ship wreck of the ‘Irish Trader’ which ran aground in 1974 on this remote beach (easiest access to the beach is via Termonfeckin).

Baltray is also home to the award winning Co. Louth Golf Club, a stunning links course which has hosted two Irish Opens.

Festivals/Events not to be missed:

Vantasival

“We used to wait out at Queensborough

Where the dippers sing in the hiss of the reeds

Dawn spreads slowly over the mud banks

And the shearwaters silently wheel on the breeze”

Song Title “Tidewaiter” by SJ McArdle

Interesting fact: Baltray was a village of salmon fishermen, when the Boyne was one of Ireland's great fishing rivers, thick with salmon.
