The best walking experience in Carlingford

Carlingford is a magical village, full of character and is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Ireland. Carlingford was 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.

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.

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.

These are perfect for people who want to learn more about the wonderful history of Carlingford. No matter what the occasion, whether you are on a hen party, stag party, corporate retreat or you are here with your family.
