WELCOME – FAILTE – BIENVENUE -WILLKOMMEN – BIEN VENIDO

01-Market House 031Welcome to the website for Blacklion and surrounding areas.   A warm welcome greets you at our local Tourist Office in the Market House, Blacklion, Co. Cavan.

Blacklion is a central location for the UNESCO Geopark Marble Arch Caves.   A must see is the Cavan Burren Park, an inspirational prehistoric landscape.  Cavan Burren Park is an area of unique geological and archaeological importance.

A wide range of activities is available to suit all ages, golfing walking, cycling, fishing, caving etc.

The village and countryside of Blacklion makes an ideal base for a relaxing break and for exploring the countryside, hills and lakes of counties Cavan, Sligo, Leitrim and Fermanagh.  Blacklion on the A4/N16 road between Enniskillen and Sligo takes its name from an inn on the old Sligo to Enniskillen Coach Road.   The town lies in a region of lakes surrounded by green hills, rugged mountains and woods, of lichen-covered crags emerging from carpets of moorland, vanishing streams and vanished civilisations.

  1. Blacklion, and area, especially Cavan Burran Park, and wonderful, and well worth a visit.
    Play golf at Blacklion Golf Club, and surround yourself with breathtaking scenery.

    A visit to Glangevlin should not be missed, visit the Shannon Pot where Irelands longest river begins,climb the Cuilcagh Mountain where you can see 4 counties, Cavan, Fermanagh, Leitrim, and on a clear day Donegal. Stop in the Glan bar for a drink and chat with some of the locals,
    dont forget to stop at St Patricks Church for a prayer to thank God for bringing you to such a wonderful place.

    Congratulations on your new web site, Blacklion is a lovely town and a great place for a meal and great pub music. As for M. McHugh’s trip to Cuilcagh it must have been a dull day for you can see the Blue Stack mountains Donegal, Sperrin,mountains Tyrone/Derry border ?. Mourne mountains Down, the Slieve Bloom mountains Ofally/ Laois border, On a clear day the familiar hump of Croagh Patrick can be seen from half way up the mountain, continuing clockwise can be seen slieve Gamph or Ox Mountains Mayo/Sligo and Knock na Ri Sligo and the Dartery Mountains bringing us back to the Blue Stacks, and why not have that prayer on the mountain top where they say you are closer to God. Don’t forget that trip to the Cavan Burren also.
