Cooley Peninsula
The Green Guide

Useful information


The granite headland of this peninsula commanding splendid landscapes looks south over Dundalk bay and north over the saltwater Carlingford Lough. Its highest point is Carlingford Mount (587m/1,925ft). Don't miss Proleek Dolmen, an impressive table weighing over 50 tons, or the wild and windswept moors of Windy Gap. Taín Way (35 km/22mi), which forms a loop out of Carlingford, is one of the best ways to explore this landscape.
