Situated one hour from Dublin and Belfast, the Cooley Peninsula lies in an area of outstanding natural beauty, boasting spectacular coastal and mountain scenery.
The Cooley Peninsula forms Carlingford Lough's southern coast. Once a part of the historical Province of Ulster, the Peninsula lies in County Louth in the Republic of Ireland.
It's a place of fresh green hillsides, woodland, forest mountains and myths.This was the legendary home of the giant, Finn McCool and the setting of Ulster's greatest saga, the epic folk tale of the hero Cuchullain.
Carlingford, the Peninsula's capital, is one of Irelands foremost medieval towns - a market town and sea port with narrow streets still graced with castles and historical buildings bearing witness to its centuries-old history.The many historical buildings include the 12th century King John's castle, the fortified Dominican Abbey dating from 1305,The Mint and The Tholsel, a medieval Toll House, both dating from the 15th century.
Nestled at the foot of Slieve Foy, it gazes across Carlingford Lough to the mountains of Mourne and provides easy access to water and land-based activities, such as golf, sailing windsurfing, and hill-walking. Its sea-faring and agricultural tradition are today reflected in its many excellent restaurants and pubs.
