Cavan Holiday Cottages
We've great holiday cottages in Cavan - superbly located for fishing - but that's not all there is to do in this pretty county - it's great simply to drive around, if you don't mind the potholes and confusing signs! The low undulating county of Cavan (An Chabhain - which means the hollow) is filled with lakes, bogs and drumlins from the last Ice Age. Cavan is known as "The Lake Country" as it's said there are no fewer than 365 - one for every day of the year.Cavan's meandering rivers, streams and tree-lined lakes provide the visitor with excellent opportunities for fishing, cruising and swimming. The Shannon-Erne Waterway links the two rivers, which spring from the wild Cuilcagh Mountains in Cavan's north-west panhandle. The mystical source of the Shannon (at 300km long it's the mightiest river in the UK + Ireland) is known as the 'Shannon Pot', and is just a few miles north of Dowra, on the Cavan Way. Lough Ramor in the south east is said to be where Jonathan Swift came up with the idea for Gullivers Travels way back in 1726. Coarse angling (pike, bream and perch) remains one of Cavan's most popular attractions, but there is also game fishing for brown trout in Lough Sheelin to the south. Cavan is an ideal area for a quiet break or a family holiday. So if you need a holiday cottage or a self catering holiday home suitable for your family just look if one fits the bill on the map.
