County Cavan Hotels

County Cavan hotels are lovely places to stay in Ireland, especially if you fish. There are over 350 lakes in the cavan.

Cavan is home to the Shannon Pot, thought to be the source of the River Shannon. The Shannon River was named after Sinnann, the daughter of Lodan.

She was said to have come to the Shannon Pot in search of the "Salmon of Wisdom." She had a bit of a tiff with the locals and was drowned.

We're sure this all made some sense at one point in time. County Cavan has some excellent hotels.
