Warrenpoint Beach - County Down

Warrenpoint Beach lies on the shores of Carlingford Loch, where the Clanrye River and Newry Canal enter the sea.  The views over the mouth of the loch and the scenic Mourne Mountains make this a beautiful location.

The shingle beach slopes gently into the water and the beach is known for its many organised watersport activities.  Jet skiing, kayaking , banana boating and more can all be enjoyed from the water’s edge.  The area is also very popular with walkers.

The resort town was built on a grid system in the 19/20th centuries.  The park in the town centre has attractive floral displays in the summer as well as a fine Edwardian bandstand from which there are regular band concerts.  There are good facilities in the town, including shops, an amusement arcade and a popular promenade. The town hosts a variety of music festivals.
