Táin Walking Festival 2013

TainThe beautiful Cooley Peninsula in County Louth will host the 5th annual Táin Walking Festival in March 2013. The festival kicks off on Friday 1st with a night walk and runs until Sunday 3rd.

Although relatively ‘young’, the festival attracts walkers from as far away as England and Holland. The walks are varied and cater for all levels of fitness. Walks will include hikes in the Cooley mountains, strolls around the shores of Carlingford Lough and historical walks exploring the myths and legends of the surrounding area.

The schedule includes a number of walks around this scenic region including a few which take in Slieve Foye, giving you a chance to bag the County Top of Louth.

Registration is compulsory. Only registered walkers can be allowed on the festival guided walks!
Festival registration at The Four Seasons Hotel, Carlingford on Friday evening 1st March.
Festival registration at the Carlingford Tourist Office (The Old Dispensary) on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd March
