Where you’ll be

Mountnugent, County Cavan, Ireland

Located in the heart of Ireland, we are surrounded by lakes, woodlands and medilic tombs. Lough Sheelin is an internationally acclaimed trout lake and provides some great fishing. These trails along the shore leading up to Crover House hotel, which bar overlooks the lake. The Hotel also hosts a 9 hole golf course. Heading in the other direction and still overlooking Lough Sheelin, Mullaghmeen forest park, covering over a 1,000 acres is the largest in Western Europe.
Spotted from the view of the cottage you will see the medilic tombs, outside of Oldcastle on the horizon.

Due to the location, a car is necessary for getting around however the lakeshore and Crover House Hotel is within 10-15minitues walking distance.
