The Tain Way is situated in the north east of the country. It is named after the legendary "Ta Bo Cuailgne" (The Cattle Raid of Cooley), which involved the exploits of Cuchulain, the Ulster Warrior hero known as "The Hound of Ulster." The route from the village Ravendale, to the historic and picturesque medieval town of Carlingford and back, gives spectacular views across Carlingford Lough, and takes in the Cooley Mountains and the wooded valleys of the Cooley Peninsula.
