While Clodagh can adapt a tour to suit the needs of your group, there are 3 main trails on offer:
Town Tour | Duration: 1-1.5 hours
The Town Tour covers the Medieval, social and general history of Carlingford. It is a gentle, fun tour and is rated easy on a fitness level.
Hillside History Tour | Duration: 2-2.5 hours
The Hillside History tour consists of a gentle hill walk covering the general history of the area and ending back in the town for a medieval tour. While not very strenuous this tour has some inclines and uneven rocky surfaces so an average level of fitness is required.
Mountain Myths and Legends Tour | Duration: 2.5-3.5 hours
The Mountain Myths and Legends trail will bring you up to Barnavave and down through the Deserted Village. This hike will cover pretty much a bit of everything from Celtic Myths, Vikings, Medieval and even some Railway history. A fair level of fitness is required for this one as there are some steep inclines and rocky surfaces.
There is also the option for a longer hike to the top of Slieve Foye to take in the magnificent views.
Family options are also available. This could be a trail suited to the whole family or you can split and send the kids on a Junior trail while the adults take on a more strenuous hike.
