Cavan havens up for grabs

Padraig Smith Auctioneers have two Co Cavan properties for sale this week.

With a unique and vibrant character, Co. Cavan is one of Ireland’s best-kept secrets and would offer prospective buyers looking to invest in the area an authentic Irish lifestyle.

Breath-taking landscapes, rich culture and a thriving hospitality scene combine to make Cavan a feast for the soul.


Dubbed as Ireland’s lake country, Cavan has also recently emerged as an up-and-coming county, offering a dynamic blend of traditional Irish culture with 21st century living.

On at an asking price of €99,000, this five bedroom house comes with a living room/diner, sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired range.

PROPERTY 2 (pictured left)

Main Street
Redhills, Co. Cavan
Two bedroom two storey residence

The second property on offer this week is in the village of Redhills – which has plenty of charm in itself. It was made famous as the location for the films The Playboys and The Run of the Country.

And the local pubs display many photographs from these films.

Shane Connaughton, the author of A Border Station and writer of the acclaimed screenplay for My Left Foot, also has associations with the picturesque town.

Redhills is a largely undiscovered fishing destination with several coarse lakes and rivers, so this next property might appeal to budding anglers.

For sale by private treaty on the Main Street is this two bedroom, two storey residence in need of repair. It would make an ideal property for a DIY enthusiast.

The accommodation includes a sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The property also has a large rear garden.

Redhills is located in the northern Cavan area just minutes from the Cavan/Fermanagh and Cavan/Monaghan borders. The village is only a 10 minute drive from Cavan town or Clones in Co. Monaghan. The asking price for this house is €35,000.
