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.
Our photo of the week was taken by talented photographer Jason Ruddy, who lives in Warrenpoint. It features a beautiful sunrise at Donaghaguy Reservoir.
The owner of Narrow Water Castle and the landlord of Warrenpoint in the late 19th century was Major Hall. He donated 7 acres of land to provide drinking water and sanitation to the town and hence the Warrenpoint Waterworks (now known as Donaghaguy Reservoir) was opened in 1876. As part of an upgrade scheme, six new build and fit fishing stands were constructed on the lake and perimeter pathways were improved in 2018. There is a lovely walk around the lake with several angling areas and the lake is well stocked with trout. A fishing permit is required.
