Killykeen is one of the flag-ship attractions in County Cavan and a key local amenity. The opening of the Greenway which links Killeshandra with Killykeen is significant and welcome, as has marketing of Cabu by the Lake in recent months. It also highlights the need for more investment.
Killykeen incorporates Lough Oughter, the River Erne and is surrounded by sites of huge historic importance from Drumlane Abbey, Trinity Island, Clough Oughter Castle and Farnham.
This linking of Killeshandra with Killykeen is vitally important. As well as the economic importance to the Town visitors can also see the historic links such as the the Rath Church. Maximising the tourist potential of Killykeen is key to developing tourism in the Killeshandra area and can build on the work done over the years by individuals and the community in conjunction with Cavan County Council and assist in progressing future plans such as the Killeshandra Camino.
Within the confines of Killykeen more and better walks and more signage are all necessary. The visitor experience needs to be further enhanced. The investment to-date are all welcome but much more is needed.
