==Crime and Violence==
 
 
Dundalk (in common with most regional Irish towns) and its surrounding areas are areas of very high crime and should be avoided if at all possible by tourists. Numerous violent attacks on tourists have taken place in recent years. Camping or the use of campervans are especially dangerous, as these have been known to attract attention from local hoodlums.
 
 
Alcohol abuse and binge-drinking are rife, and lead to constant violent disorder on the streets of the town. Tourists are recommended to get back to the relative safety of their hotels before pub closing time heralds the arrival of hordes of drunk and violent locals onto the streets.
