Lifeforce Mill - Located at Millrock, Cavan, a beautifully restored, fully working flourmill powered by Ireland's oldest waterturbine, Macadam 1846. A tour of the mill begins with each visitor making and baking his or her own loaf of brown bread which is baked while the tour takes place. All the original equipment is still used to produce Lifeforce stoneground wholemeal flour. After the tour you will return to the impressive stone coffee shop to collect your bread, hot out of the oven! Drumline Monastic Site - Located at Milltown, an idyllic setting between Lakes Drumlane and Derrybrick. A round tower and church mark the sixth century monastic site. The church building dates from thirteenth or fourteenth century and is located half a mile form Milltown village. The Cavan Way - Starting from Cavan County Council Library Services in Cavan Town, The Cavan Way provides a pleasant hill and valley walking connection between the Leitrim Way at Dowra, a small village community near the source of the River Shannon and the Ulster Way at Blacklion village.
Following generally the course of the young river to its source at the mystical "Shannon Pot", the walk follows quiet valley and river-side landscapes to the more unenclosed uplands section between the "Pot" and Blacklion, which includes the forested Burren area and its cemetery of ancient tombs, stone megaliths and monuments. Fine views are obtained from these elevated upland areas.
