Where To Eat

The Cooley Peninsula is renowned for its fantastic restaurants and gastro-pubs many of which are regional and national award winners for their cuisine. With the pristine waters of the Irish Sea and Carlingford Lough on its shorelines, the best of pasture on the lowlands and the heather on the mountain sides it is little wonder that the quality of the seafood, beef and lamb is famous at home and abroad.

The Carlingford Oysters, farmed in the clear waters of Carlingford Lough are reputed to be the best Oysters in Europe while Cooley Beef and Lamb can be found in fine dining establishments all around Ireland. It is not by chance that this “European Destination of Excellence” is the “Gastro Capital” of the North East. Enjoy the culinary delights of locally sourced ingredients, skilfully cooked and served in attractive surroundings in the many restaurants, hotels and pubs throughout the peninsula.
