We thoroughly recommend to visitors of Ballyconnell and west Cavan to stop by at the Anglers Rest for their excellent value carvery lunch. You won't find much better wherever you go for the fine choice of roasts, salad or fish platter. Very friendly staff in...More

Wonderful traditional Irish Bar serving fantastic food and drink. About 2 miles from the Slieve Russell Hotel but gets a visit every time we are in County Cavan. Had the roast beef carvery and the food was cooked to perfection.

Took my teenage Golf team here for their evening meal prior to the next days competition at Slieve Russell. One could not fault the service, food and prices. Sirloin steaks were huge and very reasonably priced as was the house red..Would recommend it to anybody
