Introducing Cooley Peninsula
Isolated and remote, the Cooley Peninsula has an arresting beauty with forested slopes and sun-dappled, multi-hued hills rising out of the dark waters of Carlingford Lough. Sweeping views stretch across the water to Northern Ireland's Mourne Mountains, while country lanes wind their scenic way down to deserted stony beaches.
The medieval village of Carlingford is an ideal base. From here, you can continue along the coast road past the picturesque village of Omeath to Newry in Northern Ireland.
