Cavan County Museum
Located in a superb nineteenth Century building at Virginia Road, Ballyjamesduff, the Museum houses the material culture of Cavan and surrounding districts. Exhibition galleries feature unique Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age and Medieval artefacts. Interesting displays include the pre-Christian Killycluggin Stone and Corleck Head, the 1,000 year old Lough Errol Canoe, eighteenth Century Cavan Mace and Lavey Sheela na Gigs. The GAA Gallery was recently opened and has attracted a wealth of Sports Enthusiasts.

Drumlane Monastic Site
Located at Milltown, an idyllic setting between Lakes Drumlane and Derrybrick. A round tower and church mark the sixth century monastic site. The church building dates from thirteenth or fourteenth century and is located half a mile form Milltown village.

The Cavan Way
Starting from Cavan County Council Library Services in Cavan Town, The Cavan Way provides a pleasant hill and valley walking connection between the Leitrim Way at Dowra, a small village community near the source of the River Shannon and the Ulster Way at Blacklion village.
Following generally the course of the young river to its source at the mystical "Shannon Pot", the walk follows quiet valley and river-side landscapes to the more unenclosed uplands section between the "Pot" and Blacklion, which includes the forested Burren area and its cemetery of ancient tombs, stone megaliths and monuments. Fine views are obtained from these elevated upland areas.

Saint Killian’s Heritage Centre
Located at Mullagh. Saint Killian was born in Mullagh, County Cavan in 640 AD. In 686AD he became a missionary to Wurzburg in Germany where he was martyred in 689AD. The exhibition and audio-visual here deal with Saint Killian including his times, his work, martyrdom and subsequent cult.
It brings to life a glorious era in Irish Church history and the work of Irish missionaries in Europe in the sixth and seventh centuries, with maps, photographs, statuettes, manuscript facsimiles and art reproductions. The exhibition also traces the development of Gaelic script from the Ogham writing of the fourth to seventh centuries and the Wurzburg Glosses (the earliest example of written Irish c.750), to the illuminated script of the Book of Kells.

Cavan Crystal
Situated on the N3 just minutes from Cavan town, they offer the visitor comfy sofas to relax in, open fires and local/nationally produced crafts. The restaurant designed by Irish craftsmen boasts an array of home cooked food. The audio-visual theatre gives visitors an insight into the craft of mouth-blown, hand-cut crystal and a brief history of Cavan and its environs.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Tony is a wonderful host who made us feel welcome. He was able to to help us track down family ancestry and provided great info for local attractions. The flat has a large bedroom and two small bedrooms with a kitchen, lounge and bathroom.

  • Tony is a gentleman and couldn't do enough for us. The venue was perfect for our fishing trip. Boat hire was arranged through Tony for Saturday a short drive away and gave us a great day out. Location couldn't be better. Great pub called Flynn's at the back of the house which I would recommend. Everything we needed for our stay was literally on our doorstep. Thanks Tony, see you again soon I hope.

  • Fantastic place to stay, Tony was friendly and accommodating, lovely real fire. Good size bedrooms. Enchanting village with lots of great riverside walks on your doorstep. Local playground. Would recommend.

  • Tony's place and his village were perfect for my romantic getaway. Everyone was super friendly and the house was amazing. It was nice and quiet and intimate but I can totally recommend it to a nice large family or a group of friends since there is plenty of room and plenty sightseeing to do very short distances away. Tony's "hot spots" on his profile of the surroundings are very accurate.

  • The small town of Belturbet has its charms and the fun quirkyness you might expect in an Irish village. Tony was the perfect host and could not have been more helpful in ensuring we had a great visit. Thanks to Tony, I was able to visit my grandfather's church, and find the farm where he and his family lived. He also went out of his way to guide us and help us find good spots to eat and drink. We didn't expect luxury accommodations and that proved to be the case. The location is excellent, with the restaurants and pubs in easy walking distance. For my next trip back I plan on contacting Tony again.

  • My son Tim and I enjoyed our brief 3 day stop over at Erneside townhouse. Tony was very friendly, welcoming and ready to assist with anything we needed. The apartment was warm, comfortable and clean, and all of the appliances worked well except for the washing machine. The apartment is right across the road from an excellent little walking trail beside the river, and there are plenty of convenience stores nearby. Thanks Tony for your hospitality :)

  • Tony holte uns persönlich in der Stadt ab, nachdem uns unser GPS fehlgeleitet hatte. Die Kommunikation mit Tony per Email, Telefon oder SMS klappte hervorragend. Das einen Steinwurf vom Fluss entfernte Stadthaus verfügt im EG über eine sehr große Küche mit Essbereich und einen Aufenthaltsraum. Im 1 OG befanden sich 3 Schlafzimmer jeweils mit Waschgelegenheit und das ebenfalls sehr große Bad/WC. Die Parkmöglichkeit befindet sich direkt vor dem Haus. Alles nötige für ein erstes Frühstück/Snack stand bereit. Ein Supermarkt, geöffnet auch sonntags und abends, befindet sich in unmittelbarer Nähe, der nächste Pub ist gleich um die Ecke. Die Stadtmitte mit Geschäften und Restaurants ist innerhalb von 5 Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen. Auch in der näheren Umgebung gibt es gute Restaurants. Belturbet, im Herzen von Irland gelegen, eignet sich als zentraler Ausgangspunkt auch für Ausflüge nach Dublin, nach Nordirland und an die Atlantikküste. Die seenreiche Landschaft bietet hohen Erholungswert, viele Kleinode gibt es zu entdecken. Nach unserer Auffassung gibt es nichts, was Tony nicht organisieren könnte (Mietwagen, Bootsfahrt usw.) oder worüber er nicht Bescheid weis. Tony informierte uns bereits gut vor unserer Anreise und stand uns mit Rat und Tat während unseres Aufenthalts zur Seite. Wir waren während einer Reise durch Irland für 2 Übernachtungen Tony’s Gäste. In den gängigen Reiseführern wird diese Gegend zu unrecht großteils ausgeblendet. Bei einem erneuten Aufenthalt werden wir mehr Zeit in dieser Gegend verbringen. Herzlichen Dank für alles.

    Response from Tony:

    Thanks Renate! A pleasure to have had you here! The above - (website hidden) translates reads: "Tony picked us up personally from the city, after we had our GPS misguided. Communication with Tony via email, phone or SMS worked out great. That a stone's throw away from the river town house has on the ground floor has a very large kitchen with dining area and a lounge area. The 1st floor there are 3 bedrooms each with washing facilities were also very large and the bathroom / toilet. The parking is located in front of the house. Everything needed for a first breakfast / snack was ready. A supermarket, open on Sundays and evenings, is located in the immediate vicinity, the nearest pub is just around the corner. The town center with shops and restaurants can be reached within 5 minutes walk. Also in the vicinity there are good restaurants. Belturbet, in the heart of Ireland, is suitable as a convenient starting point for trips to Dublin to Northern Ireland and the Atlantic coast. The lake-rich landscape offers great recreational value, are many treasures to be discovered. In our opinion, there is nothing that could not organize Tony (car rental, cruise, etc.) or not what he knows about it. Tony already well informed us prior to our arrival and helped us with advice and assistance during our stay to the side. We stayed during a trip to Ireland for 2 nights Tony's guests. In popular guidebooks, this area is largely hidden unjustly. During another visit we will spend more time in this area. Thank you for everything."
