...only a few miles from Dundalk..

Located three miles south of Dundalk and perched at the water's edge, is the popular local resort of Blackrock. The venue is used for sail boarding when the tidal conditions permit, as the water is very shallow. From here, there is a very fine view of the Cooley Mountain range and the north side of Dundalk, with its clusters of houses and cottages along the lower slopes of the mountains and coastal areas. A walk along the promenade of this unique seaside village with its magnificent scenery, can be a most exhilarating experience. The Dundalk Golf Club is situated just to the north of the village. To the west, at nearby Haggardstown, and close to the Fairways Hotel is the ruin of the medieval parish church where in the 1670's, it is reputed that St. Oliver Plunkett carried out ordinations of clergy. The village also features a choice of select accommodation, hostelries and bars - all of which make Blackrock a perfect location to relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the immediate surroundings.
