Nestled between rolling drumlins, stunning woodlands and countless lakes and rivers, Killeshandra is a convenient base for tourists as it is within 90 minutes of Dublin Airport in the east and The Wild Atlantic Way to the west. It is also next to Ireland’s Ancient East Region. A perfect base for exploring any part of Ireland!

Killeshandra Camino is run entirely by volunteers. In a spirit of consideration and respect for environmental sustainability we encourage practising a Leave No Trace ethic.

Killeshandra Camino is looking forward to welcoming walkers to join the 35km walk and ‘Created in Cavan’ will be there to help walkers along the way. Three of our wonderful producers will provide much needed energy boosts with Mary Ellens Meadow providing refreshment with delicious cordials, the Farrelly Family’s scrumptious Drummully Boxty being served up.
