Visit Cúchulainn’s Castle
The ruin of a late 18th century castellated house known as ‘Byrne’s Folly’ stands on top of the mound. It was built by Patrick Byrne, a well-known pirate, in 1780 ad. The motte is built on the site of a pre-Christian fort called Dún Dealgan, meaning ‘The Fort of Dealga’. This site is important in Irish mythology as it is said to be the birthplace of the legendary warrior – Cúchulainn.
An Tain Arts Centre
An Táin Arts Centre derives its name from the Táin Bó Cúailnge or the Cattle raid of Cooley, a legendary story from early Irish literature, which is said to have taken place in the nearby Cooley Peninsula. An epic tale of war, it tells the story of Queen Medbh of Connacht who declares war on Ulster and tries to steal the famous stud bull Donn Cúailnge, but is opposed by the super-human warrior Cúchulainn who defends Ulster at all costs.

The County Museum, Dundalk is located in a beautifully restored late 18th century warehouse in the Carroll Centre at Roden Place in Jocelyn Street. The museum opened in 1994 and offers an extensive programme of permanent exhibitions, temporary displays, drama presentations, music recitals, lecture and film.

Chronicling the historical development of County Louth from the Stone Age up to the present, the Museum, through a combination of artefacts and computer interactives, presents this story over three galleries of permanent exhibition.
