 Carlingford Lough - Profile

Location

Although not much bigger than a village, Carlingford is one of Ireland's best preserved medieval towns. Positioned on the east coast of Ireland, marking the border between the North and the South, this long lough provides many peaceful anchorages.

Position 54° 00.47'N, 06° 04.53'W (Lough entrance)

Clearance

This is a Port of Entry.

See the Noonsite/Ireland/formalities page for full details for clearance.

Docking

The entrance can be impassable in very strong on-shore winds, and at all times yachts must keep clear of the commercial shipping using the buoyed channel up to the busy container port of Warrenpoint.

There is a small marina at Carlingford, about halfway up the lough on the southern shore, and, near the head of the lough, pontoon berths at Warrenpoint on the northern side.
