Clogherhead beach is located in the small fishing village of Clogherhead. This busy fishing village wraps itself around the western foot of the dominant head of Clogher.

The fishing village of Clogherhead is located on the east coast of Ireland in the County of Louth, approximately 70km north of Dublin.

The headland affords uninterrupted views of the Cooley and Mourne Mountains 30km to the north and to Lambay Island 35km to the south. It is a preferred location for all types of activities including, fishing, walking, sightseeing and water based activities.

The village is in close proximity to the historic town of Drogheda, the Boyne Valley and Newgrange Heritage site. It is an excellent location for a weekend break or a longer holiday for touring the many other attractions of the county.

The village developed around the fishing industry with the waters of Clogherhead reputed as being the best fishing waters in the country. The harbour, known as Port Oriel was built in 1885. It was extensively enlarged and re-opened in 2007.

The beach has received the International Blue Flag award for 2017.
