Carlingford Lough

County Louth

Louth is the smallest of Irelands 32 counties.

It covers a short stretch of coast between Drogheda and Dundalk that features a scattering of traditional seaside resorts.


There are a few hidden gems in Louth that we offer our clients a chance to explore on their tours of Ireland.

Our driver/guides are expert in exploring hidden gems.


The Cooley Peninsula is between Dundalk Bay and Carlingford Lough.

It is remote and great for hiking.

But it also played a role in some of the legends of Ireland.


The most famous of these great tales involves Queen Maeve of Connacht.

Around the first century AD she is said to have started a war to win a bull she coveted.

She is said to have immobilised her enemies with a magic sickness.

Only one local warrior, Cuchulainn, was still able to fight.

He is said to have held her army off single handed.


The little village of Carlingford is where Ireland and Scotland Luxury Tours likes to stop for coffee.

It also has an amazing antique shop!
