Cavan Burren Forest Park is a fascinating geological and archaeological forest landscape in north-west Cavan with new trails and interpretative centre to bring it to life for you!

With huge sinkholes where streams disappear, a sunken valley and the ‘Giant’s Leap’ among some of the amazing features found here (similar to those found in the Burren, Co. Clare). There are more than 80 archaeological monuments from the ‘Giant’s Grave and ‘Calf-House Dolmen’ to stone circles and rock art throughout the site.

All of this along with breathtaking views of Cuilcagh Mountain and the surrounding landscapes of Lough MacNean, Cavan and Fermanagh and the wider Global Geopark.

Approximately 4km south of the village of Blacklion
