Why not celebrate Ulster Wildlife’s 40th Anniversary on a guided coastal walk exploring the amazing diversity of marine life around Carlingford Lough on Friday, 17 August at 11am?

Starting from Cranfield beach, walk along the beach to Soldier’s Point to enjoy excellent views of Haulbowline Lighthouse, as well as Green and Blockhouse Islands where seals and seabirds abound. 



The walk will then carry on along the shore exploring some of the many wildlife treasures cast up by the tide.

On board the Carlingford Scenic Ferry, you will be introduced to terns, seals and maybe even a dolphin or porpoise before arriving in the picturesque village of Greenore for lunch.

Speaking to Newry Times, Dave Wall, Living Seas Officer with Ulster Wildlife said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to explore first-hand the stunning diversity of wildlife that lives along our coast.



“As well as being a great day out, we hope it will inspire people to find more to enjoy, more to learn and more to value in the fantastic marine life around our shores.”

Online booking and payment is essential – £5 per person to cover cost of the return ferry.

Meet at Cranfield Beach Car Park, American Lane, Cranfield, BT34 4 LN. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.



The event will take place on gravelly and uneven surfaces, so participants are advised to wear walking boots/ sturdy shoes.

Please check the forecast beforehand and dress suitably. Bring your own binoculars to enjoy better the walk.
