Cavan town was the first Gaelic Medieval town in Ireland and has a rich history which we are proud to share with you, with the help of our very modern QR Codes and website. While you are here, we hope that you take advantage of our warm Cavan welcome and get to know our culture better and the history that has made us proudly who we are today. We will be expanding on this project and have even more history to share so please come again soon.
Thank you for visiting Cavan and we hope you have a great time!
