Outdoor Trails


Carlingford Greenway



The Carlingford Greenway takes cyclists and walkers along the shoreline of the majestic Carlingford Lough between Omeath and Carlingford. The route follows the old railway line offering spectacular views of the Cooley Peninsula, Carlingford Lough, and Slieve Foye. You will pass fields full of grazing sheep, cattle, and horses, through old railway level crossings and even a few bridges with plenty of old railway era gateposts and gates still in situ.

The greenway is traffic free for most of its distance and is ideal for parents with children in buggies, walkers, wheelchair users and cyclists. Services are available in Carlingford and Omeath. Bicycles can be hired in Carlingford. 

In association with Sport Ireland.
