Louth County Council Deploys Beach Lifeguards to Blue Flag Beaches

With over 70km of coastline with spectacular views Louth naturally attracts crowds of visitors, residents and tourists to its beautiful beaches. All are welcome, and we hope everyone enjoys our fantastic natural facilities, but we also urge caution around waters as we want everyone to be safe.

While it would be impossible to patrol the whole coastline, Louth County Council has Designated Bathing Areas in the County, namely at

  • Templetown Beach on the Cooley Peninsula, North Louth
  • Port Beach, Mid Louth
  • Clogherhead Beach, South Louth

These 3 Blue Flag Beaches have been Risk Assessed for safety and our Beach Lifeguards will patrol the designated areas during the summer period at the following times.

  • 11am – 6pm during Weekends in June and September
  • 11am – 6pm daily in July and August

We urge members of the public to always check tide times and assess sea conditions before getting in the water, and never to swim under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Please choose safety and always swim at a lifeguarded water way.

For emergency services call 112 or 999.
