Newry is located three miles up the Newry River which flows from the head of the Carlingford Lough inlet on Ireland's northeastern coastline. It is a provincial city reached by way of a canal currently solely used by leisure craft accessed via a single lock near the Warrenpoint Port at high water. The newly designated city provides berths alongside its town quay.

Set miles inland within a secure lock-in canal Newry offers complete protection from all conditions. The canal is accessed via Warrenpoint Port’s illuminated deep water shipping channel that runs the entire length of the lough. Careful navigation is generally required for this location owing to exceptional currents in the lower lough and at the entrance.
Please note

The immediate Warrenpoint area is subject to silting and full of mud and sandbanks. Hence great care should be taken moving outside the marked channel.
