The Cabra Castle Hotel Resort can be found in the north east of Ireland within County Cavan. Its golf course forms an integral part of the facilities and activities at the resort and there are a number of other outdoor pursuits available close by. As the name of the hotel suggest the site was originally a castle which has been lovingly converted in to a luxurious 4 star hotel yet still retains some of its 19th century charm. The golf course is set in the grounds of the castle and the estate is surrounded by some prime Irish countryside. 

There are actually two Cabra castles found here however one now lies in ruins and has done so for a long time hence why a second castle was built to replace the first which was destroyed in the Cromwellian War. It was in 1964 that the replacement castle was purchased by the Brennan family who converted it in to a 22 bedroom hotel which they owned until 1986 when they sold it. It lay unused until 1991 when it was refurbished and extended. The golf course here was added sometime in the late 1970’s although there is some misinterpretation of the exact date. 

Consisting of 9 holes the course is a typical resort parkland style and measures 5261 metres when played as 18 holes with a par of 70. Features are very traditional and players with varying experience are sure to enjoy their play here. 

As the course is part of the resort complex the facilities here are very good and there are a number of dining and drinking options for all to enjoy. The sumptuous hotel is also home to a number of lounge areas and parts of the hotel can be hired for an array of functions such as weddings. 

Priority with regards to tee times is given to hotel guests however there is good general availability for all. The green fee rates are fair and there are a number of discounts and packages that can combine play here with a stay in the hotel making this a perfect location for a getaway.

The complex is well located to receive guests from much of Ireland as well as nearby Northern Ireland and the town of Ardee is just over 20 km away. With regards to international visitors, the nearest airport is that of Dublin which is around 87km away from the site and has strong links to all corners of the globe. The obvious accommodation option here is the hotel which is luxurious and well-appointed and should appeal to most tastes.
