Leprechaun and Fairy Underground Cavern

The tour includes 15 minutes of storytelling and an introduction to how the last leprechauns of Ireland became a protected species by the E.U..This is done in the story room across from the cavern at Shalom B.B.You may park there. This is followed by a visit below the ground where leprechauns and fairies converge in the morning as the sun rises. The visit is predominately indoors and definately great for a rainy day. It is not really suitable for children under 5 or who have not lost a tooth.If children are crying or disruptive, parents may be asked to leave with them till quiet, to allow other attendees to enjoy the whole experience. Adults should enjoy it at any age!

While the leprechaun cavern is closed due to COVID-19, it is still a lovely family stroll. There are nice monuments in the garden which provide lovely little photo opps with the kids. I’d say it’s a lovely spot when it’s fully functioning. I’ll definitely be heading back the next time I’m in Carlingford.

Carlingford to Omeath Greenway

Reviewed By MartinMaryOmeath - Omeath, Ireland

A beautiful walk all along Carlingford lough. Start at The Granvue Hotel in Omeath, enjoy the beautiful scenery all the way to Carlingford, watch the cyclist's. Have lunch in The Orchard Bakery, and walk back, 15k so about four hours with lunch. If going Carlingford to Omeath, make sure to call into Cafe Rosa in Omeath for lunch or coffee and fabulous pastries.

King John's Castle

Reviewed By annedS7568TR - Donegal Town, Ireland

This castle is now known as Carlingford Castle and has just reopened following extensive conservation work. I availed of one of the daily guided tours and had a choice of 11.00am or 3.00pm. The tour of the castle interior took approximately 50 mins to an hour. It was so well worth while as I got a real flavour of life in a medieval castle with Hugh De Lacy and his descendants and the history of this cute wee town called Carlingford. The tour cost E5 .00 per adult and incredibly for an extra euro a tour of the entire town is available. Well worth a visit.
