About Cavan Way

A 26 km gentle linear walking route that progresses from the village of Dowra northwards by country paths and quiet roads to reach the magical Shannon Pot, where the great river rises. The terrain consists of mainly quiet roads, paths beside the infant Shannon and open moorland. There are options for overnight accommodation at both ends of the route, but public transport possibilities are only fair.
