County Cavan is part of the romantic Lakelands of Ireland and is well known for its natural beauty. Home to Lough Sheelin, the River Shannon and the River Erne as well as rolling green hills and acres of ancient woodland, Cavan attracts outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers as well as those who just want to slow down and relax with a game of golf or a walk.
The county capital, Cavan, is a pretty market town with a Cathedral, an Abbey, a museum, a theatre and a busy High Street. The town is also home to the second oldest crystal factory in Ireland – founded in 1969 by six local business men; Cavan Crystal is still producing both traditional and contemporary pieces. Of course no market town would be complete without a Farmers Market – Friday morning at the Egg Market in Connolly Street and Saturday at McCarron’s shop, draw in the crowds with its fresh local produce. Cavan is small enough to stroll around but there’s also a free bike hire scheme, and for a small deposit you can hop on a bike – or even a tandem - and pedal around seeing the town and surrounding area from a different perspective – helmets and locks are included.
The waterways in and around Cavan make it an ideal place for anglers looking to hook trout, bream, eels and pike but the rivers are a great place for kayaking, boat cruises and spotting other wildlife. The Radisson Blu Farnham Estate Hotel, Cavan is one of the town’s main attractions with beautiful guided walks across the 500 acre estate. There’s a 73 par 18-hole golf course which rolls out over the green hills and a stylish spa if you want to kick back and relax. If you want to explore further afield one of the most popular tourist attractions in County Cavan is the UNESCO Marble Arch Geo Park. This area, only a few miles from the Radisson Blu Farnham Estate Hotel, Cavan showcases some of nature’s most magical natural history, with rock formations dating back 650 million years and the Shannon Pot – thought to be the source of Ireland’s longest river. There’s a network of underground caves and waterways to explore, by foot or on an exciting boat ride on an underground river.
