The tiny village of Glangevlin is situated in northwest Cavan. It is surrounded by the Cuilcagh Mountains and borders the counties of Leitrim and Fermanagh.

Glangevlin lies in a beautiful, almost alpine-like landscape and the visitor is guaranteed a breathtaking panoramic glimpse of West Cavan as well as the Drumlin belts of East Cavan.

A large stone known as ‘Maguire’s chair’ is located on the right hand side of the road, roughly 6km from Glangevlin, so-called because it was thought to be the inauguration site of the Maguire clan in ancient times.

The view from here is superb; Brackley and Templeport lakes lie far below, while the Slieve Russell plateau is on the left. On a clear day, it is possible to see the spire of the cathedral in Cavan town.

Five kilometres north-west of Glangevlin is the Shannon Pot, the source of Ireland’s longest river.

Glangevlin has a strong traditional Irish background and Irish was spoken up until the 1920s, one of the last places in Cavan where this was commonplace.

Glangevlin can be particularly recommended to those interested in hill walking and mountain climbing, or for those merely wishing for a pleasant drive packed with spectacular views.
