It is quite difficult to walk here as there isn't a footpath from the town of Carlingford to the marina. So we had to keep to the side of the road and on the grass. However, it is very scenic and picturesque when you make your way down to the marina.

Thanks for the review Laura B! Awh... tell me about it... We've been campaigning for a footpath between the Marina and the harbour for probably 30 years at this point! It can be quite dangerous walking under the bridge at King John's Castle. Particularly at night! BUT!! I'm delighted to tell you that it might actually happen some day soon!... More

Hi Lisa, Thank you for your review! Yeah, it's particularly quiet round here in September and October - just as the sailing season ends. Perfect for a nice, peaceful stroll. :) Bliss Hope to see you again soon! Jonny More

Unfortunately whilst in Carlingford it was lashing rain but we still walked to the Marina. The tide was in and I really enjoyed the scenery. Worth walking to for the views and fresh sea air.

CarlingfordMarina, General Manager at Carlingford Marina, responded to this review

Hi Shelly-Ann, Good on ya for getting out for a walk, despite the lashing rain! In my opinion; Carlingford Lough looks its best on a clear and crisp winters morning. If you find yourself back down this way again between November and January, I'd highly recommend a walk along the Greenway. Bring a good coat, hat and gloves! More

Probably the ugliest marina I have ever seen, it actually seems abandoned. We had a drink in the bar, that was nice enough with good WiFi and nice views if you didn't look down. We also started the walk but we only did a couple a kilometres before turning back, it's all fenced off like a prison yard with what... More

Hi Alavotre, Wow... Ugliest ever? I'm a bit hurt! It's a fair point though. We're a bit rough around the edges still... As the project develops we'll be able to focus more on the "frills" as opposed to just the functionality. If you were to compare us to Marinas in Dubai or the South of France; 2 stars is generous!...

Had an early bird at 6:30pm and it was just great. Also I got a 50% reduction on berthing fees at the marina because I was only staying for a meal. Highly recommended!
