Carlingford & Cooley Mountains Walks

Walking in Carlingford and on the Cooley Peninsula is the perfect way to discover the ancient landscape and fabulous scenery with walks for all abilities and age.

Carlingford is the trailhead for many of the Loop walks with more walks starting in Grange, Omeath, Ravensdale, Rockmarshall and Whitestown. A longer looped walk THE TÁIN WAY can begin in Ravensdale Woods, Ballymakellet, Omeath or Carlingford (which traverses the Cooley Peninsula mountain trails & roads).

All of the loop walks offer walkers the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular surroundings, natural beauty and heritage that is abundant in throughout the Cooley Peninsula. These looped routes are designed to suit average levels of fitness and are well serviced, catering for the occasional and leisure walker.

The new Greenway between Carlingford and Omeath is a very welcome addition to the many walking and activity attractions on the Cooley Peninsula and for which we now have a dedicated page. 

The Greenway is an outstanding amenity, the 6.2km greenway cycle & walking path from Omeath to Carlingford follows the route of the old DN&G Railway line between the Carlingford Marina and Griers Quay continuing on to the village of Omeath. This new Greenway provides cyclists and walkers with a safe track midst the most spectacular views along the scenic coast of Carlingford Lough.
