Cabra Castle Hotel is just an hour's drive from Dublin Airport, and is the perfect location for a weekend break in an Irish castle. The castle is situated in wonderful County Cavan, ideally located to enjoy a variety of activities and places to visit. See a few of our favourite ideas below...


Take time out and play a round of golf on the castle's own 9-hole golf course, with stunning views of the hotel's mature gardens and numerous lakes. Golf is complimentary to residents and clubs are available for hire at reception.

Horse Riding

See the countryside from a different perspective. Local equestrian centres can cater for both beginners and the more experienced rider, and the staff at Cabra will happily help organise such sessions.


Get away from it all and sample Cavan's excellent fishing areas. County Cavan is renowned for having a lake for every day of the year. Cabra Castle is in an ideal location to set up base whilst on your fishing holiday.


Test your shooting skills; Cabra Castle has both rough shooting and clay pigeons nearby on a privately owned estate. Advance booking is highly advisable.

The Craic

Kingscourt town has ample bars and nightlife alongside the bars in the castle. The Derby Bar, inside Cabra Castle, offers light snacks throughout the day and entertainment on some nights.

"We only stayed for 1 night, but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the service was exceptional! The added horseback ride was such a delight and Bryan, the guide, was eager to please."
