Cavan is a walker’s place. Here we have a great range of places to pace through. Walk along the river and canal paths between towns with a flask of soup and a companion or three. Try gently rolling drumlins one day and upland blanket bogs the next. Enjoy the tranquillity of forest walks in Kingscourt, Virginia and Bailieborough.
Or walk the Cavan Way from Dowra to Blacklion past the Shannon Pot – the source of the Shannon – a place of rich folklore.
Visit the Marble Arch Caves Geopark – a UNESCO protected site – a special place spanning the uplands of Cavan and Fermanagh. By foot, Neolithic Ireland reveals itself quietly as you stroll along. In ancient woods you get a feeling for why our ancestors picked this place over others. Visit http://www.thisiscavan.ie/fun/go/walking
