Holiday activities in Ireland


There is a superb new golf course sloping down from the Crover House Hotel towards the lake. This course enjoys wonderful views over Lough Sheelin. It's only one mile down the shore from Captains Bay fishing lodge, and indeed one can travel to it by boat or by car!


The Crover House hotel has a very good Restaurant Menu.
Bistro Costello, Oldcastle can also be recommended.


There is a pony trekking centre within 10 minutes drive.
Both the experienced horse person and the absolute beginner can be accommodated.

The Lake, Shores, and Islands, are an absolute Mecca for the study of ornithology. Greater crested Grebes, Moorehens, Mallards, and Little Grebes along with many others are found in the bay itself. A heron often rises off our own shore.

Observing the wild.

On our own acre of lake shore alone, can be seen Rabbits, Hares, and Squirrels, to name but a few. Children take great delight in seeing the wild animals.


There is a safe swimming spot just a walk down the shore. There is also a fully equipped swimming pool in Cavan town.
