Cabu Cabins: A Unique Lakeside Retreat In Cavan That’ll Immerse You In Nature

There’s been a hefty buzz around the newly opened Cabu Cabins in Cavan over the last couple of months.

After you have a flick through the article below, you’ll understand why (it’s some of the most unique accommodation in Ireland, to be fair).

Set within the woods on the lakes of Lough Oughter in County Cavan, these log cabins and lake houses offer an incredibly picturesque getaway for couples and families, with plenty of outdoor activities on their doorstep.

Cabu By The Lakes is a beautiful 100-acre property set within the magnificent Killykeen Forest Park in Cavan.

They offer an incredible 28 cabins across the property with access to woodland walks, fishing on the private jetty and nearby trails for cycling.

There’s also a variety of incredible amenities available such as a lifestyle shop, an al fresco dining space and The Cabin Club, where you’ll be served up delicious grill and wood-fired pizzas.

The sleeping options at Cabu Cabins in Cavan are endless with plenty of beautifully designed cabins and lake houses to suit your holiday needs.

The one-bedroom log cabins are perfect for a romantic nature getaway for two. While the two-bedroom lake houses are great for families or a group of friends.

There are also a few family-sized boathouses that can sleep up to six people with direct access to the lake. They are all impeccably designed and styled, staying true to the natural surroundings with pine finishes, earthy tones and rustic touches.

If you thought that Cabu Cabins couldn’t get any better, there’s also a relaxing spa experience on the property known as The Retreat.

The treatments are based on ancient Japanese practices with an outdoor hot tub and sauna for the ultimate peaceful escape.

On top of that, there’s a bar on-site (The Explorer’s Bar) where you can kick back with a selection of craft beer and creative cocktails.

There’s really no need to leave the property on your stay with everything you could possibly need from a nature escape nearby.

This place is slightly pricey but it’s definitely worth it for the incredibly unique cabins and luxury amenities on-site.

The prices are different depending on the type of cabin you choose. They also have different minimum stay requirements depending on the time of year which might make it difficult for some people.

So, I put two nights for two people sharing a log cabin and here’s how much it worked out at:

  • Total price: €482
  • Per person: €241
  • Per person per night: €120.50
