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

This was by far our favorite B&B stay! The home was immaculate; the rooms were large and comfortable; the sitting room with fireplace and plenty of reading materials was relaxing; breakfast was delicious with homemade breads, jellies, and made to order eggs; and Catherine went above and beyond in helping me with my ancestry research and making us feel welcome. We only spent a day and yet when we left we felt like we were leaving our best friend!

The Lake Avenue House was tucked away in a beautiful and magical setting. Catherine was a lovely host. Breakfast was amazing! We had a room with four of us and did not seem crowded- it was perfect. I would return to the Lake Avenue house B&B again!

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
