| 10 Places to Stay

Located at the easterly edge of Cavan's spectacular lake country, Kingscourt is a lively market town with great period charm. A wealth of character and romance lives on in its broad main street and in its buildings - the wonderfully traditional Cartlan's thatched pub, for instance, or the magnificent Cabra Castle, now a hotel set in delightful gardens. Anyone interested in architecture will enjoy the gothic Immaculate Conception church, with stained-glass windows designed by the eminent Irish artist Evie Hone. Kingscourt is also something of an industrial centre, although its assets are more widely associated with the countryside. This is a popular golfing and fishing spot, with excellent catches to be had in nearby lakes such as Whitewood and Ervey. And right on the doorstep is the Dun a Rí forest park, situated in a beautiful glen, with many scenic and relaxing walks leading off the beaten track through woodland and along the river Cabra. Nearby, Lough-an-Leagh mountain - an area of outstanding natural beauty - pays rich rewards to hikers with enough puff to reach the summit, where there are views over 14 different counties. Kingscourt also hosts the annual Muff Fair, a fun-filled carnival that celebrates the town's ancient horse fair.
