Fun-filled family trip ideas from Carlingford Omeath Greenway to Carlingford Lough Ferry and Seascope

Today’s family day trip is all about fun as the children get some exercise and learn all about sea creatures!

First things first, grab the bikes, scooters and the buggies and helmets and get yourselves to the Carlingford Omeath Greenway. Board the Carlingford Lough Ferry at Greencastle, Co. Down and soak up the panoramic views as you cross this beautiful lough.

On arrival to Greenore, take the short 3km drive to Carlingford town Marina. Don’t worry if you forget the bikes, there are two bike hire companies located at the marina, so you wont be stuck!

Carlingford Lough Greenway is an ideal spot for parents with small children, dog walkers, runners and cyclists (even the “wee” ones with stabilisers) – let them burn off the energy whilst you take in the views.

After a nice energising morning on the greenway, it’s a quick stop in Carlingford for some lunch and then hop back on the Carlingford Lough Ferry towards Greencastle, Co. Down.

On the other side, make your way down the Mourne Coastal Route to Warrenpoint and to East Coast Adventure where you can try sea kayaking or even spend the night in a glamping pod! Or, why not enjoy an afternoon of fun (and education!) at Seascope, Northern Ireland’s first ever Lobster Hatchery & Marine Research Centre.

Where to eat? Try Fitzpatrick’s Bar & Restaurant or the Whistledown Hotel in Warrenpoint.
