Dundalk is a town (2011 Pop 37,816) in County Louth, Ireland, close to the border with Northern Ireland.

The town originally developed as a port around the Castletown River, and is around half way between Dublin and Belfast on the route of the former N1. The town centre is bypassed to the east by the N53, which since 1996 has provided access to the port and acts as an urban distributor, and to the west by the M1 bypass, which opened in the 2000s.
