This is Cavan!
Discover the Heart of Ireland's Hidden Heartlands!
County Cavan is the beautiful land of lakes in the middle of our island. This is a place away from it all – but not that far away.
The only ones who won’t be glad to meet you are our fish… that’s just how they are.
Our restaurants rank among the best in the country and our love of music is known to continue into the early hours.

“An Cabhan” is an old Irish word meaning “The Hollow” – and in a simple way that says a lot about this place. Cavan is a refuge, a place to rejuvenate, a shelter from stress.
Many visitors note that once you get here, the pace of things seems to slow down a bit. Whatever the reason for this change of pace, you’ll be surprised by just how many great attractions and activities we have here to fill all that wonderfully slowed-down Cavan time.
