A pretty Medieval village with a lot of history and tons of charm, Carlingford is packed with centuries-old cottages and crooked lanes. The seaside town has roots from the Viking era and is located on the east coast of Ireland. Visitors flock here for the history, culture, and beautiful photographs of a quintessential Irish town.
History buffs will love King John's Castle which stands in semi-ruins overlooking the town and dates back to the 12th century. Next, cross the harbor into the town through the only surviving original gate -- Thosel. Once in town, head to Carlingford Heritage Center to get your bearings of the town and brush up on its past.
After seeing the remains of the old Dominican Friary (built in 1305), the stone carvings of national monument, The Mint, and the 16th-century Taafe's Castle, make sure to stop off for a traditional pint and pub grub in the village.
For a truly Irish folkloric experience get down to the Leprechaun and Fairy Underground Cavern, where visitors can take tours and hear tales of these legendary creatures.
Wonderful hiking trails are also on offer in the Cooley Mountains, packed with lush views across the greenery.
