Bed and Breakfasts in County Louth
Louth is the smallest county in Ireland and is affectionately known as the 'wee county'. Considering it only covers an area of 511km, it is a region of Ireland that offers so much in terms of beautiful scenery, dramatic landscapes, sandy coastlines and fine heritage sites.
Carlingford Lough and the Cooley Peninsula are areas of natural beauty. The Lough attracts lovers of outdoor leisure activities and water-sport enthusiasts. The Cooley Mountains, with their magnificent and dramatic landscapes, are very popular with hill walkers. The Tain Way is a national walking route that spans 40km. The varied walking trails and terrains make the mountain region an ideal location for a walking holiday. In the past, Carlingford and the Cooley Peninsula were honoured with the award of Ireland’s European Destination of Excellence.
Carlingford village is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Ireland and has a rich historical past. The narrow medieval streets lead down to a beautiful sheltered harbour where sailing, yachting, windsurfing, canoeing and water-skiing are favourite leisure pastimes. You will be spoilt for choice with the selection of fine restaurants, pubs and accommodation.
