About the location
KINGSCOURT, COUNTY CAVAN
Carrickmacross 8 miles; Ardee 13 miles.
Kingscourt, historically known as Dunaree which means "fort of the king", is a town in County Cavan, located near the Meath border. The 19th-century 'Gothic-style' Cabra Castle, is located near the town, and was originally built on the site of an earlier Cormey Castle which had been destroyed during the Cromwellian War. The castle has, in recent years, been restored and expanded and is now a five star hotel which is popular for weddings and is home to a 9 hole golf course and tennis court. Situated in a valley, a couple of miles from Kingscourt, is Dún na Rí Forest Park. Formerly part of the Pratt family's Cabra Estate, Dún na Rí is home to stoat, hare, mink, rabbit and otter, as well as red and grey squirrel along the banks of the River Cabra.
