Warrenpoint

Warrenpoint (from the Irish: An Phointe meaning 'the point' - alternatively Rinn Mhic Giolla Rua meaning 'the promontory/point of the red-haired servant') is a small town in County Down, Northern Ireland, lying on Carlingford Lough. In the 2001 Census it had a population of 7,000. It is known for the Maiden of the Mournes festival and for the nearby Narrow Water Castle dating from the 1660s. Also nearby is the Burren Heritage Centre. The town docks are capable of handling large vessels.

Places of interest

Old Narrow Water Castle just outside the town is a three-storey tower house built in 1540 to protect the entrance to the Newry river estuary. Across the road is the New Narrow Water Castle built in 1840. There is also a golf club in Warrenpoint which has held many competitions over the years, recently it held the Ulster boys and it also held the Ladies European Tour in 2003 which Sophie Gustasfen won.

The town was also used as a doppelganger for Bundoran in the film The Butcher Boy, especially the exterior of the Star of the Sea Convent and the Victorian Swimming Baths.
