Meet your host…

Catherine O'Reilly

My husband, Joe and I lived in America for a number of years, when we returned home to Ireland 21 years ago it was one of our dreams to open a B&B, over the years we have enjoyed welcoming guests from all over the world to our beautiful corner of Ireland. West Cavan offers rolling hills, hidden lakes, a soft gentle countryside that makes one slow down and enjoy the Irish pace of life. Joe and I would be happy to help with genealogy research,travel plans, booking activities or restaurants etc

Our 5th stay with Catherine and Joe was wonderful as always! Our rooms were very comfortable and attractive. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. Catherine was especially helpful with local phone calls as we were having difficulty with cell phone and directory numbers. She made calls for us until we had made our family connections.

Hi Coleen, thank you so much for staying with us again, always delighted to see you and your family. I am always happy to help out with local calls as I know myself it can be difficult with international area codes and local telephone numbers. All the best Catherine

Simply gorgeous! We used the Lake Avenue House B&B for a stop-over on our way to the northwest. If we would have known in advance the particular charm of the lovingly furnished rooms in a stylish family house, the beauty of the local environment and - last but not least - the excellent breakfast, we would have probably stayed for a few more days ... However, all this was topped by our exceptionally caring and friendly host Catheríne, who even offered to give us a return ride to the next pub, when we arrived tired from the journey. A very special "Thank you!", Catherine, for having us! Given the opportunity, we will for sure come back. This place is highly(!) recommended.

Lake Avenue House B&B was such a beautiful property. The house and surroundings were so pleasant. We enjoyed our stay. Catherine was a fabulous host. Her breakfast was superb! The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. I would recommend this location to anyone traveling in the north. A hidden gem!!

Great location, the view from our room overlooking the lake was terrific. Could not find fault with anything. Definitely recommend.
