Lough Sheelin

September 2010

In a county with no seashore, but any amount of lakes, Sheelin is one of Cavan's attractive lakeside swimming spots.

This particular location is a small harbour type area, clearly designed for anglers and their small boats. While the lake itself might get choppy this area is fairly well protected, so you can swim in a bit of comfort. Along the small harbour wall there are a couple of places where there are steps which lead you into the soft lake water.

As well as a large car park there are a couple of picnic tables and a small grassy area to sit on after your dip.

You travel on this road for a couple of kilometres where you will come to a right turn onto the L7079 and signposted for the lake.
