Carlingford Lough Carlingford Louth

This beautiful scenic inlet on the East Coast of Ireland rests between the Cooley Mountains and the Mountains of Mourne and is celebrated for its natural beauty and breath-taking panoramic views.

The lough is the ideal place to spend time outdoors and appreciate nature.  Whether you like sailing, water based adventure activities, sightseeing, walking or cycling along the Carlingford Lough Greenway, the lough has something to offer everyone.  Once you’ve worked up an appetite you can enjoy a taste of one of nature’s treasures, Carlingford Lough Oysters which are produced here in the grade-A waters of the lough.

The region surrounding the lough is famous for myths and legends of Celtic warriors, and the area is also abundant in historical heritage sites.  The picturesque medieval village of Carlingford nestled on the shores of the lough, is a place brimming with character and is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Ireland.
