Walking Holiday Ireland

Cliff Wayenberg and his family have walked many of the routes and highly recommend the Dundalk area not only to other families but the adventurous traveller and enthusiastic rambler.

From the rolling hills of the Cooley’s, a patchwork quilt of colour, to the magnificent Mourne Mountains sweeping down to the sea. Outdoor and avid hiking and trekking enthusiasts, they were inspired by the legends and history of the area. From the ancient days of the Táin Bó Cúailnge (Cooley Cattle Raid) and Cú Chulainn to the later influence of the Vikings visible in the nearby Carlingford Lough.
