Where is it?
Carlingford is a small, beautiful village which has several castles, pubs, several pretty decent restaurants and 2 hotels. It is quaint and realxed but lively too. See www.carlingford.ie great website.
There is a local horse-riding school only a few minutes walk at the Ghan house. Hill walking is great and the top of the mountain 587 metres. There are signed easy walks, local mountain bike tracks, swimming or canoeing in the harbour. The local adventure centre offers mote outdoor activities. The local stoney beach is fine to swim if you like cold water, there's a wetsuit in the house if you don't! There's a children's playground and local tennis courts too. You can become a guest member of the local hotel's pool with sauna and jacuzzi. 3 mins walk from the house.
This all without using a car or even walking too far! If you have a car then there are several golf courses nearby, day-trips to Newry for shop or cinema; the Mournes for bigger mountains or lovely Templetown (5 miles) for a sandy beach where there is a lifeguard in the summer.
You can also reach Dublin or Belfast for a day-trip (90 minutes drive) or historic Newgrange in county Louth. There's a tourist office right in carlingford.
