WhereParticipating Restaurants Louth
Louth may be Ireland’s smallest county but it has a surprisingly long beautiful coastline, stretching over 70km from Omeath to Baltray. This splendid coastline is home to soaring mountains, rugged headlands, fishing harbours, rock pools, unspoilt wetlands, sandy blue flag beaches at Templetown, Port and Clogherhead, and the stunning Carlingford Lough Greenway. There are many vibrant towns and villages along the coast with an array of water activities, artisan shops, pubs, cafés and award winning restaurants to enjoy.
Louth has a bounty of seafood right on our doorstep such as whitefish, prawns, mussels, winkles, sea kale, lobster, cockles, sweet tasting Carlingford Oysters, Dunany Crab, Annagassan Razor Clams, Annagassan Smoked Salmon and Oriel Sea Salt. Fishing boats from Clogherhead and Annagassan provide a variety of fresh whitefish such as Hake, Cod, Monk, Whiting, John Dory, Haddock, Megrim, Sole, Pollack and Gurnard.
The fishing fleet in Louth form the backbone for the world famous Dublin Bay prawn (langoustine), Ireland's second most valuable species.
