Originally built in 1816, by Thomas Duff, a well known architect, it is the home of the Hall family who have lived at Narrow Water since 1670. The estate extends to over 700 acres, and is a beautiful setting, overlooking Carlingford Lough and the Cooley Mountains.

Very nice grounds and a beautiful building. I've been many times over the years, however, the last time we went, we were asked to leave as the Castle is privately owned. There looked to be an event in the courtyard, so I'm assuming that was the real reason we were asked to leave.

We arrived to see the Wedding fayre. This was well planned and an enjoyable experience. The one thing that let it down was the accessibility. My mother, suffering from Leukaemia, found the amount of stairs difficult to traverse. The staff were friendly and helpful and very good craic. A fabulous place to visit and spend a few hours.

With the sun rising in the centre of the lough during December the Castle is a good subject to capture. Desmond Daly

A nice stop on way to Warrenpoint. Small picnic area. Interesting but not spectacular. Has bad memories of soldiers murdered during troubles. Still awaiting a bridge to cross to eire.

Took the family to see the Castle on a fine summers day. Legend has it that there is a tunnel leading from the keep to the castle!! We had a picnic in the grounds and the kids ran around. It is now a wedding venue and residential area. Worth a visit.

The apartment offered us the perfect winter break. With its open fire, Christmas tree, dining table and beautiful decor. The pictures are fab but what one experiences when walking into the property is priceless. We loved every minute of it and will definitely come back for another stay! Ramona, the manger of the property was so helpful and dealt with... More

Attended a wedding here in Dec, very impressive venue and very picturesque, but bloody cold as all castles are. All in all a good day with good music, etc. The driveway could do with a bit of surfacing to improve the first impression on your approach. A very nice place for a wedding though and service, etc all very good.

We attended a wedding at the stunning Narrow Water Castle at the weekend and from start to finish, the whole day was perfect. This is an incredibly beautiful place standing among well manicured lawns and mature Hydrangea bushes with a permanent marquee for the wedding reception. The service itself was held in a long galleried room followed by a drinks... More

What a stunning place overlooking the port of Warrenpoint and nestling amidst the Mourne Mountains its one of the must visit places and you will not be dissapointed in the splendor of this castle.........The Castle itself is beautifully decorated and retains its natural carachters and the view from each and every window is spectular..

As many reviews on here state - this castle seems to be privately owned. I was lucky enough to visit here as part of a business so I seen its beauty first hand. Inside, the building is in slight need of repair, although still beautiful! As for the grounds of this castle, stunning is a word that comes to mind!
