Castle in Down - Narrow Water Castle County Down Ireland

Narrow Water 

Narrow Water Castle, overlooking Carlingford Lough in County Down, Northern Ireland, is situated on the outskirts of the picturesque seaside town of Warrenpoint, four miles from the city of Newry. It is about one hour from Dublin Airport and less than an hour from the city of Belfast, a short distance from the M1 motorway, linking Dublin to Belfast.

The Narrow Water Castle and Estate has been the property of the Hall family since 1670, the first home being the Old Narrow Water Castle, an old Norman Castle built on the shoreline of Carlingford lough, now a national monument. The family then built Mount Hall, an Irish long house, on nearby rising ground (c 1690) and lived there until the early 19c when Roger Hall built the present castle-an extravagant Elizabethan revival mansion all in local granite.
