Rather depends on your interests, there is the new Johnston library with a very good reference section if you are into local history. On the lighter side thete is the cinema, ten pin bowling and swimming pool leasure centre. Plenty of pubs, some with music and nice restaurants including the Oak Rooms on Main Street that I can particulary recommend. Outside Cavan town there is the Killykeen forest park and historic St. Fethlmidh's Cathedral with Bishop Bedell's grave.

You can check with the tourist office for more details about whats on: www.cavantourism.com

hi una55. haven't got suggestions on what to do in cavan but have a suggestion of where to eat. we happened to be passing through cavan last month and decided to stop off for a bite to eat. we found a bar/restaurant called mcmahons in the centre of the town. it is absolutely excellent imo, great staff - all very friendly and helpful and great food too. there were 3 of us, one had homemade soup which was served with brown bread and butter and followed by a deep apple pie with cream, another had a prawn salad (lots of different leaves including spinach, once again with brown bread & butter, and the third had a chicken pannini. to drink we had a cappuccino, an americano, and a pot of tea. the total bill came to €24 which i thought was excellent value. they also do smoothies and juice drinks to order and we took a few away with us when we were leaving. i'd really recommend this place. website: www.mcmahonscafebar.com

on a previous couple of visits we have stayed over at the old poste and their restaurant is absolutely excellent - great staff too. their accommodation is good too - the rooms are tiny but perfectly clean and comfortable. website: www.theoldepostinn.com

Can recommend the Oak Rooms restaurant on Cavan's main street particularly for their early bird menu, good value and excellent service.
