We are not quite sure of the status of this swimming pool area, located just beside Gartylough. To call it a proper swimming pool would be stretching it and there was no one there to ask when we visited. We know, however, that it is used for water safety classes.
The pool is fenced in, quite shallow and must be good for children to splash and learn. Outside the pool is the large lake itself, but we didn’t venture in on this occasion. So, more a place for children to have a swim if you are passing through, but check with Cavan County Council if it is open to the general public.
Right beside the pool is a children’s play area and toilets
From Cavan town take the R 198 toward Arvagh. As you drive through the town look right at the end of the main street for the play area and lake.
