It retains its medieval appeal with narrow lanes and cobbled streets throughout the town.
    • Carlingford is set against the backdrop of the Cooley Mountains, on the Cooley Peninsula along the Flurry River, famed for its outdoor pursuits including hill walking and horse riding along mountain, and woodland trails all overlooking the Irish Sea. There is an abundance of tracks, trails and mountains for outdoor pursuits for all ages.
    • For the golfing enthusiast, there is the nearby Greenore Golf Club (8 km) and Ballymascanlon Golf Course (18 km) while further afield is County Louth Golf Club – Baltray (69 km). For racegoers, Dundalk Stadium (21 km) is Ireland's only all-weather horse and greyhound racetrack.
    • Over the years, Carlingford has been an important fishing port having a strategic position on the East coast of Ireland and is highly regarded for its water sports with the yacht and sailing clubs within a short distance. A favoured pastime of many Carlingford residents is a jump off the pier in both the summer and winter months!
    • The area is well-connected and is 14 km from the A1/N1/M1 which provides convenient access to both Belfast Airport (94 km) and Dublin Airport (102 km).
