Whether you’re taking a day trip or enjoying a holiday break, the new Carlingford Lough Ferry is an unforgettable experience and a great adventure for the family. Located midway between Belfast and Dublin, Carlingford Lough Ferry connects the majestic Mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland with the dramatic Cooley Peninsula at the beginning of Ireland’s Ancient East in the Republic of Ireland.

This largely undiscovered region is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which can be enjoyed from the upper viewing deck of the car ferry. Enjoy the medieval town of Carlingford with its wonderful range of craft and curiosity shops, exquisite boutiques and delicious cuisine or for the more active, enjoy camping, cycling and mountain bike trails. Explore a much greater playground with outdoor adventure, beaches, golf, nature, heritage and stunning scenery.
