The sea louth Scenic Seafood Trail captures what’s best about County Louth’s 70km+ coastline, the stunning scenery and of course the finest local seafood.
Explore the roads less travelled, meet local characters, breathe the salty sea air, see where our proud seafood producers land their catch, eat fresh local dishes by the coast, admire the spectacular views and create memories that will last a lifetime…
The sea louth passport will guide you to 14 Coastal Scenic Viewpoints along the trail. Each scenic viewpoint has a unique illustrated stamp for you to collect and add to your passport. These stamps may be collected from the shops and outlets along the trail which are listed in the passport.
The passport also lists participating restaurants where you can enjoy delicious fresh local seafood dishes. Under the current circumstances, restaurants can’t give out stamps at the moment, so be sure to keep the receipt for your seafood dish and present it at one of the tourist offices to obtain your ‘restaurant’ stamp. An updated list of restaurants is available here.
Pick up a free sea louth passport from any of the county’s three tourist offices in Drogheda, Dundalk or Carlingford, and follow the trail to 14 scenic locations. Each scenic viewpoint has a unique, illustrated stamp for visitors to collect from specified shops and outlets along the trail. In order to complete the passport, visitors must also collect two restaurant stamps – choose from over 40 participating restaurants and enjoy a delicious fresh local seafood dish from their menu to receive a stamp.
Once completed, the passport can be taken back to a Louth tourist office, where it can be exchanged for an exclusive sea louth memento. There is no expiry date, visitors can collect stamps and exchange their completed passports at their leisure.
