Introducing Carlingford

Someone apparently forgot to tell Carlingford about the Celtic Tiger's demise. Amid the medieval ruins and whitewashed houses, this vibrant little village buzzes with great pubs, chic restaurants and upmarket boutiques, spirited festivals and gorgeous views of the mountains and across Carlingford Lough to Northern Ireland.

As one of the loveliest spots on the coast, Carlingford can be crowded during the summer, especially at weekends; book accommodation well ahead.
