Carlingford if your not into hen and stag do's

Hi. Traveling around Ireland in April/May and interested in somewhere between Dublin and Belfast and Carlingford looks interesting , except it seems as though it's a popular place for hen and stag do's. Is that overwhelmingly obvious?

We love energy and fun, but is it full of drunken crowds?

Certainly not full of drunken crowds . You might get the odd L plate and entourage group but nowhere as bad as some other places .

I'm glad Oma and Harvey are saying this. I thought I'd lost track!

I have never heard of Carlingfodr beining a major Hen & Stag destination and have recommended it as a pleasant seaside location but haven't visited for a few years.

Where did you get your info jennifermargaret?

It wasn't like that when I visited, either. My wife and I enjoyed our time there. Nice people, beautiful scenery and lots of interesting sites within range.

There was a wedding the day before we arrived, so accommodations were limited, but we saw NO rowdy crowds.
