An unforgettable voyage of discovery

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 Dublin and Belfast, Carlingford Lough Ferry connects the dramatic Cooley Peninsula at the beginning of Ireland’s Ancient East in the Republic of Ireland with the majestic Mountains of Mourne, the gateway to Northern Ireland. Surrounded by epic scenery and shrouded in mystery, with a rich tapestry of legend and folklore hidden in its hills. This largely undiscovered region is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Visit Newcastle 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. Follow St. Patrick’s trail through Downpatrick or, hot on the trail of Game of Thrones filming locations such as the haunted Forest in Tollymore and Winterfell in Castle Ward, onward to “The Kingsroad” and the world-famous dark hedges! The Carlingford Lough Ferry connects a range of fantastic holiday activities on both sides of the Lough.

Relax on Port Beach located a few short miles north of the fishing village of Clogherhead in Co. Louth or embrace the high-octane energy at the Funtasia Water Park in Drogheda and Emerald Theme Park in Co. Meath.
Carlingford Lough Ferry is your route to enjoy the best experiences during your vacation in Ireland.
