County Cavan is the southernmost part of the province of Ulster. It is one of the boarder counties between the Republic and Northern Ireland. It is one of three Ulster counties to belong to the Republic. Cavan is full of lakes and rivers, indeed, it is said that the area contains some 365 lakes - one for every day of the year. The Shannon Pot, the source of the River Shannon, Ireland's longest river, is located in County Cavan.

Cavan is home to some of the most diverse land in the country, from its highest point, the Cuilcagh Mountain in the northwest, to the waterlogged lowlands of the Upper Erne valley, it is a landscape of contrasts. Jonathan Swift is said to have come up with the idea for Gulliver's Travels while visiting Virginia, a small town on the shores of Lough Ramor.

Cavan town has a unique history. It is the only medieval town in the whole of Ireland to have been founded by the Irish. The layout of the town itself, with its winding, narrow streets, stays true to its original shape set out over seven centuries ago. There was a Franciscan friary built in the town in the 14th century. The town is now home to the stunning St Patrick's Cathedral, which was build between 1941 and 1947.

For those interested in outdoor activities, especially those water related, County Cavan offers some of the finest fishing, boating and swimming in the country, which is no wonder given all those lakes!
