Five Places to See in Carlingford

Starboard House is a luxury home and you’ll certainly be tempted to spend as much time there as you can while on your holiday. However, we’ve detailed some of the best things to do and see in Carlingford for the avid tourist.

Carlingford Lough

Carlingford is situated on the southern shore of Carlingford Lough, with plenty of boat tours available to take in the views; with fishing trips available for the kids, rods and bait provided. Or, walk the shores for a truly leisurely experience.

Slieve Foy

The Cooley Peninsula is a beautiful place to get out and hike. With Slieve Foy serving as the mountainous backdrop to the town, it’s an ideal day out for a picnic but if you prefer the adrenaline take a rock climbing or abseiling tour.

Medieval Architecture

Carlingford still retains its medieval layout, with narrow lanes and streets throughout the centre. One of the old gates still stands on Tholsel Street, as well as a 16th century town house called the Mint. There are regular walking tours of these pieces of history around Carlingford that promise an interesting stroll.

Carlingford Castle

Also known as King John’s Castle, this amazing structure was built in the early 12th century just after the Norman invasion of Ireland. Packed with history for the grown-ups and full of fun and fields for the kids.

Carlingford Abbey

The Carlingford Abbey is a medieval Dominican Abbey and National Monument founded in 1305. Unusually, it had two towers added in 1432, giving the Abbey a fortified appearance. You’ll get some truly unique photos here.

With amazing restaurants, pretty shops, and 18 holes at Greenore Links Golf course, you’ll never find yourself short of wonderful things to do.
