Bailieborough Holiday Homes Cavan
Bailieborough is a vibrant and busy town situated 50 miles from Dublin in the scenic hills of south east Cavan. Bailieborough was founded in the early 17th century by William Bailie, a planter from Ayrshire in Scotland. Nothing survives of the Castle he built beside the local lake.
Today the town boasts a fine public library, the tastefully restored 17th Century Wesleyan Chapel Arts and Cultural Centre and a leisure centre with swimming pool. There are also a number of 19th century churches, a Masonic hall and a market house which can be visited.
Walkers will enjoy a ramble through the Castle Lough Forest located just outside Bailieborough. Exploring the forest you will find the ruins of Dungannon Fort and also a monument to those who died in the 1748 rebellion at nearby Rebel Hill.
Bailieborough is dramatically located under the watchful eye of Lough-an–Leagh mountain (1119ft); an area of outstanding natural beauty. On a fine day it is possible to see 14 counties from the summit of the mountain.
The town lake and several other lakes surrounding Bailieborough provide excellent coarse and pike fishing ensuring the area is very popular with anglers.
