Clogherhead, Co. Louth

The fishing village of Clogherhead is located on the east coast of Ireland in County Louth, approximately 70km (44 miles) north of Dublin. The village developed around the fishing industry with the waters of Clogherhead being reputed as being the best fishing waters in the country. The harbour known as Port Oriel was built in 1885.

Clogherhead peninsula located just north of the village is designated a Natural Heritage Area under the 1997 Louth County Development Plan.

Clogherhead offers plenty for tourists to see and do all year round. There are plenty of fine walks - the headland affords uninterrupted views of the Mourne Mountains 30km to the north and to Lambay Island 35km to the south - and there are some of Ireland's finest championship links golf courses nearby.
