Carlingford is situated on the shores of Carlingford Lough, directly across from Co. Down. The preservation of its medieval character has ensured it to prevail among Irelands finest Heritage Towns. Its many archetectural features include the Thosel, the Mint, Taaffes Castle and the Dominican Friary. The combination of a medieval past with modern conveniences makes Carlingford an essential place to visit.
King John's once might fortress, now in ruins, commands the entrance to the lough.
The town itself is a huddle of old streets, which grew around the castle. Carlingford was a wealthy place during the Middle Ages, famed from its oysters.
The town is a recommended place to start the 19-mile Táin Trail, which heads northwest through thick forest and returns from the southwest along the ancient Golyn Path between the peaks of Slieve Foye and Barnavave.
