The town stands on the site of an early Christian monastery, Lann Leire, which was regularly plundered by the Vikings of nearby Annagassan.

Nearby White River Mill is a 17th century flour mill, open to visitors. Rathesker Lakeside walk and woodland ecological area is located a short distance from the town. As with most places in County Louth there are numerous Championship standard golf courses nearby.
