Blues on the Bay Cruise

About

Sit back, relax and soak up the unique sounds of the blues on as we cruise Carlingford Lough.

Blues music is known as the root of all American music and popular around the Lough area. The local town of Warrenpoint is renowned for its annual Blues Festival, a celebration of blues music and a favoured event for blues fans. We are delighted to be able to showcase some of our local blues musicians on our new 'Blues on the Bay' Cruise.

These two-hour evening Lough Cruises highlight the beauty of this stunning stretch of water, as you relax to the sounds of authentic blues on the Lough.

These evening cruises take us along the Southern shoreline, past the medieval town of Carlingford with its picturesque marina and imposing King John's Castle. On the Northern shoreline, enjoy panoramic views of Greencastle Royal Castle, and Rostrevor Bay, as the sun sets on the stunning Cooley Peninsula and Mourne Mountain region.

While onboard, you'll also enjoy an audio tour as we share the stories with of the famous 'Lough of Legends'. Food and drink services are also available onboard.

Board the cruises at our terminals at either Greenore, Co. Louth or Greencastle, Co. Down, and begin your cruise along this panoramic Lough area. Learn the stories of the famous myths and legends of the Lough. Be sure keep an eye out for Finn, Carlingford Lough's resident dolphin as we depart. He's sure to pop up and say hello!
