Tailormade Just For You
A European Destination of Excellence for European Destination of Excellence 2008
Carlingford and the Cooley Peninsula in Co Louth were chosen by the EDEN (European Destination of Excellence) team when they were looking for regions that showed excellence in the area of ‘Tourism and Local Intangible Heritage’. And it’s easy to see why.
Carlingford is a virtual outdoor museum of Medieval Ireland. It’s quaint cobblestone streets offer the finest dining, designer shopping, markets and delicious coffee houses.
The Cooley Peninsula’s landscape has witnessed the footsteps of Irish giants, the Celtic warriors Cú Chulainn and Fionn Mac Cumhaill and is also home to the last leprechauns of Ireland. This legendary setting offers adventure, activity, horse riding, sailing, bird watching, golfing, angling, walking trails and heritage tours within its breath taking scenery.
