  1. Romantic Walks

Cavan Way

We are blessed in Cavan to have so many tracks and trails! From canal walks to Castle loops and our beautiful Cuilcagh Lakelands Geopark. Bring a packed lunch, put on your walking shoes and choose from one of our many walks around the County. Most of the walks are completely off road, giving you the chance to hold hands and reconnect in the beautiful County Cavan countryside.

Farnham Estate Spa

After a long day walking, there is no better way to relax than spending some time treating yourself in one of our many spa destinations. You could skip the walk altogether and just treat yourselves to some relaxation time. You can experience holistic therapies from all over the world, allowing the mind and body to re-balance and revitalise. For the full list, just visit our website here.
