Welcome to Blackrock, Co. Louth

Ireland’s Tidiest Small Town

The chic seaside village of Blackrock lies on the shores of Dundalk Bay, just 10 minutes drive from Dundalk. With its beautiful promenade and variety of beaches, seafront cafes and tearooms, lively pubs and top quality restaurants, tranquil coves and rock pools, and spectacular views of the whole expanse of the bay backed by the Cooley Mountains, it is the ideal location for a short break, a leisurely daytrip, or an afternoon stroll in the bracing sea air.

Blackrock currently holds the title of Ireland’s Tidiest Small Town in the National Tidy Towns Competition, and is also holder of the top award in the “Louth Looking Good” competition. 

Blackrock Tidy Towns is one of the principal community groups in the village. Our objective is to make Blackrock a better place in which to live, and a more pleasant place to visit and enjoy.
