Things to Do
Cavan County Museum: A lovely county museum dedicated to collecting and preserving the history of County Cavan. The Museum is housed in the former Convent of St Clare in Ballyjamesduff and contains exhibitions going back through 6000 years of history to the modern era. Along with beautiful gardens, there is also an outdoor World War I exhibition, featuring a replica trench built to the original specifications as used by the Royal Irish Fusiliers.
Dún a Rí Forest Park: Visit the lush enchanting forest of Dún a Rí outside Kingscourt, where the legendary Cú Chulainn, the Gaelic warrior, rested while defending Ulster against the armies of Queen Maeve. Other places of interest include Flemings Castle, an old military barracks and the now-vanished Cabra Village. For nature lovers there is a great diversity of wildlife in the park including stoat, hare, mink, rabbit and otter, as well as red and grey squirrel. The tranquil River Cabra runs through the park, which is dominated by great oak and ancient ash trees.
Cavan Burren Park: A walk along any one of the trails in Cavan Burren Park is like taking a walk though time. This spectacular prehistoric park is located in West Cavan and boasts numerous geological and archaeological features including megalithic tombs and glacial formations. There are some great walks of various distance and difficulty and the site has recently been transformed with the inclusion of a new interpretative centre, toilet and car park facilities and interpretation signs across the site.
The Shannon Pot: A short trip from Cavan Burren Park is the Shannon Pot, the traditional source of the mighty River Shannon. The Shannon Pot’s fame can be traced back to its connection with the Salmon of Knowledge and with the legendary Finn MacCool and the Fianna, the great warriors of Irish mythology. The site provides ample parking and a lovely picnic area. nterpretation is available both within the car park and at the Shannon Pot itself.
Clough Oughter Castle: This captivating circular castle, situated on a small man made island in Lough Oughter, lies just outside the town of Killeshandra. It has been the subject of many pieces of Irish art since the 18th century, and continues to be a popular scene for photographers today. The castle is famous for being the last remaining stronghold for the Ulster rebels during the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland, but sometime in March of 1653 the castle fell to Cromwells canons. Canoes and kayaks are available for hire, as well as guided boat trips around the lake and out to the castle.
Castle Saunderson Demesne: Located on the border between Cavan and Fermanagh, the story of Castle Saunderson is reflective of the story of the island of Ireland. The development and opening of the Castle Trail in 2017 has seen the original walkways around the castle reinstated, and charts the history of the Saundersons, one of the most significant Anglo-Irish and Loyalist families. The trail focuses on the history of the castle, through the plantation era and all the conquests and divisions that eventually led the demesne and the island of Ireland to peaceful co-existence.
Saint Kilians Heritage Centre: Located in the village of Mullagh, near Virginia, this heritage centre celebrates the life of St Kilian, a 7th Century saint born in the area. The centre examines his life, his martyrdom and his connections with Germany, where he is a patron saint of the city if Wurzburg.
