Carlingford (11).JPG



Carlingford, nestled at the foot of Slieve Foye Mountain, is a beautiful village brimming with character.  It is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Ireland and is rich in history, heritage and Irish mythology.  The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, hill walking, adventure activities and water sports.  Visitors can explore the charming narrow streets full of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants, discover the many heritage sites, take to the water on a boat tour of the Lough (booking required), or simply stroll around the quaint harbour and admire the spectacular panoramic views across the Lough to the Mourne Mountains.  Visiting boats can berth at Carlingford Marina, an ideal base from which to enjoy all the area has to offer. 

"The Cooley Peninsula must be seen to be believed

Those ever changing colours on mountain, land and sea

From Carlingford’s old castle – we see silver, green and gold

Change to brilliant blues and tans no artist’s brush could hold!”
