County Louth / Co Lú
This is the smallest county in Ireland but it has a great wealth of history and beauty in its walkways and in the early Christian monastic Abbey with its high cross and round tower. In the north of the county the visitor will find the panoramic Cooley peninsula and the Proleek Dolmen at Ballymascanlan. The most scenic area is on the east coast, Beelurgen, on the Cooley Peninsula and just miles from Dundalk would be a good place for the visitor to stay. Drogheda (the bridge of the ford) is an old and historic town, but is a grand shopping town and the visitor should stay here awhile, it is a perfect base to explore the surrounding area; and again there are a number of guest-houses here and you will be warmly welcomed.
