Date: 27/07/2022


Carlingford has been selected as one of five finalists in the Irish Times Best Place to Holiday in Ireland 2022 contest. 

At just over an hour's drive away from Belfast and Dublin, Carlingford is a scenic wonderland offering mesmerising mountains, stunning valleys and so much more. Situated between the island’s two capital cities, it is the perfect getaway for those looking to visit an area of outstanding natural beauty.  

One of the main attractions is the Carlingford Lough Catchment area, which offers a wide range of fishing options for a variety of anglers, from trout fishing in the rivers and lakes to sea angling from the shore. 

Loughs Agency CEO Sharon McMahon is looking forward to welcoming potential new visitors to Carlingford in the near future. She remarked: “We are delighted The Irish Times has selected Carlingford as one of their top five Best Places to Holiday in Ireland for 2022.  

“With its breath-taking views, Carlingford is the ideal destination for visitors from near and far. Its beautiful forests, lakes, and rivers are enticing so many more to the area, so I would like to wish Carlingford the very best of luck in the competition. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for the right result for an area which is so pivotal to our organisation.” 

The overall winner will be announced in The Irish Times on the weekend of 30th & 31st July.
