Cooley in beauty spot top ten

PICTURESQUE Cooley Peninsula has been named the tenth most beautiful place to visit in Ireland by the influential US website 'The Huffington Post.'
The north Louth coastline featured among world famous sights such as The Cliffs of Moher, The Ring of Kerry and The Giant's Causeway.
In what was a huge coup for the Cooley Peninsula, the area also made the cut by its inclusion in the top 10.
The Huffington Post was full of praise for the area as one of the most atractive 'off the beaten track' locations.
'At northeastern tip of Ireland, the remote Cooley Peninsula juts out into the Irish Sea just below the border of Northern Ireland and while the region remains largely free of tourists, there's still plenty of stunning scenery to take in, enjoy the views from the forested Mourne Mountains, stop off at the charming medieval village of Carlingford and walk the windswept coastline in one of the country's most rewarding off-the-beaten-track destinations.'
