Drumlane Abbey

Located just outside the village of Milltown, County Cavan on a beautiful site overlooking Garfinny Lough,  the intriguing monastic site of Drumlane includes an abbey, a monastery and a remarkably intact round tower constructed in the year 555AD.

Although the monastery is closely affiliated to St. Mogue, it is believed the site was constructed some time before his arrival and most likely by St. Colmcille. The circular round tower, which stands next to the Abbey at Drumlane is remarkably intact and is recognised as the only surviving round tower of its kind in the dioceses of Kilmore. Round towers were built throughout Ireland between the 5th and 13th centuries. Interpretation and parking are available on site.

Clough Oughter Castle is part of the Marble Arch Geopark, Co. Cavan.
