General information

Narrow Water Keep, Warrenpoint
Narrow Water Castle
Narrow Water Castle

Excellent example of a tower-house and bawn built about 1568 at a point where the Newry River meets Carlingford Lough, a strategic spot. (Children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult).

There has been a keep on this site since 1212. It was originally built by Hugh de Lacy, first Earl of Ulster, to prevent attacks on Newry via the river, as part of the area's Norman fortifications. The original was destroyed in the 1641 Rebellion.
