Located outside the village of Blacklion in County Cavan is a limestone plateau known as the Cavan Burren Park. Rich in archaeological treasure, it features megalithic tombs, rock art, glacial erratics, and pre-bog walls.

Visit Cavan Burren Park to explore a wealth of archaeological and historical treasure in County Cavan. The park is one of the finest prehistoric landscapes in Ireland and through the newly established visitor centre, visitors can discover megalithic tombs, stone walls, ancient rock art, glacial erratics, and pre-bog walls.

The park offers stunning views over Lough MacNean, Cavan, and Fermanagh and the surrounding landscape. Alongside the Visitor Centre, there are five walking trails (one with multi-access) with interpretation along the way to help you unravel the layers of archaeology.

Fascinating dolmens, well-informed local guides, and the wide-open landscape provide visitors with a unique opportunity to gain access to a vast spectrum of natural and man-made history. Explore a landscape that has evolved from its formation in a tropical sea south of the equator, through the various ice ages to become what it is today.

Cavan Burren Park Visitor Centre provides information on the geological, archaeological, mythological, and natural history of this intriguing landscape before you embark on one of the five discovery trails. Picnic facilities, coach and car parking, and guided tours are also available at this free attraction.
