Carlingford Marina to Omeath

Carlingford Lough Greenway

In 2013 the Greenway was developed from Carlingford Marina to Omeath and is already proving very popular having over 50,000 visitors in 2016. The access points for this section are at Omeath Pier and Carlingford Marina.

More recently the Greenway has been developed from the centre of Newry City at the Albert Basin to Victoria Lock. Access for this new section of the Carlingford Lough Greenway is from either the Albert Basin or Victoria Lock.

Harbour and Haven

Newry Canal’s harbour area the ‘Albert Basin’ provides a deep water basin currently used by pleasure craft which can be moored along the Quays. The Newry ship canal was a means of accessing Newry City from the Irish Sea via Carlingford Lough. The Albert Basin is located at the heart of Newry City.

Victoria Lock is a beautiful picturesque peaceful haven, located approximately 8 km along the Albert Basin from the City of Newry, and has significant historical value. Stop for a picnic or rest to absorb the scenic views before setting off again.
