Nestled between Co. Down on it’s northern shores and the Cooley Peninsula, Co. Louth on the South, the area around Carlingford Lough is one of outstanding natural beauty. Steeped in legend and history the area has something for everyone. We hope our website helps you to explore and fall in love with all it has to offer.
What a week of sunsets! Our photo of the week is this beautiful vision over Carlingford Lough shared by John McCavitt. John is an historian. His most recent book was about General Ross whose monument is a feature of the skyline on Carlingford Lough. John suffered a brain injury eight years ago and has been experimenting with new things to replace some parts of his life that he has lost. Photography is one of them. His photos regularly feature on the BBC NI and TG4 weather broadcasts. Recently, he has been taking “Photo express” classes with the Clanrye group in Newry. John’s own phone ran out of battery so the photo was taken by his son’s girlfriend, Emma on a family tour of the Mournes on Friday evening. John is definitely taking some credit because he knew there was going to be an amazing sunset and he knew where a really good place to capture it would be, Greencastle. We love it!
