Introducing Warrenpoint

Warrenpoint (An Pointe) is a Victorian resort at the head of Carlingford Lough, its seaside appeal somewhat diminished by the large industrial harbour at the west end of town. Its broad streets, main square and renovated prom are pleasant enough though, and it has better sleeping and eating options than either Newry or Rostrevor, including a couple of excellent restaurants.

About 2km northwest of the town centre is Narrow Water Castle, a fine Elizabethan tower house built in 1568 to command the entrance to the River Newry.
