County Cavan

Hi. We are considering a trip to Cavan from the US sometime during the next few years. We have a diverse group: Single adults, Parents, children, Grandparents, etc. Where might we stay that would offer much to do for such a group? We have some young adults as well so pubs and restaurants in a town atmosphere may be appreciated. We wouldn't mind being on or close to water (loughs, etc.) either. One last item; our group numbers around 15 so we would want to rent houses or similar that could accommodate that number. Oh, we also like to golf. Is this too demanding?

Hi Kevin, Cavan is the lakelands so your lough requirements are easily met. Cavan is not so touristy, however with forest walks, fishing, boating, geopark, dozens of pubs with traditional music, several award winning restaurants and two 18 hole golf courses beside Cavan town. If you have any special requirements just let us know.

Hi Kevin

We live in County Cavan and it certainly meets all your requirements. Cavan Town will be hosting the all Ireland Fleadh (trad music festival) for the 3rd year this year in August and it's a really great time to be around. If you can't organise your trip so soon though Cavan is still worth a visit another time. The town itself is an average sized Irish town with some good bars and restaurants. There are also some fantastic rural resturants, notably McNeans in Blacklion owned and run by one if Ireland's top celebrity chefs. You can get to Cavan town from Dublin airport by bus no problem but to get the most from a trip to the county you would definitely need your own transport. The lake system is fantastic with the Shannon Erne waterway running through the county. You can hire cruisers at Ballyconnell and go for miles and miles in either direction. The lakes are good for fishing too. Cavan Canoe Centre is a very professional outfit that hires out canoes and also does guided tours. There is a golf course in Cavan town and one at the Radisson Farnham Estate and at the Slieve Russell hotel outside Ballyconnell. For a bit of fun there is a par 3 golf course attached to a propper Irish country pub called McSeains in a little place called Cornafean - good luck if you can find it! In west Cavan there are mountains and great walking and megalithic site called the Cavan Burren. County Cavan shares a border with Northern Ireland and you can easily take a trip up north. There's no border and NI trouble anymore- the only way you'll know you're in the north is the road signs change. Enniskillen would be the nearest town in Northern Ireland and is well worth a trip especially if you locate Blakes Bar on the high street. Good luck with planning your trip I hope that you make it and have a great time.
