The Shannon Pot

Source of the majestic River Shannon

This is the source of the majestic River Shannon, as it stretches 280km from its source in Cavan to the Shannon Estuary.




Discover The Shannon Pot

Ireland’s longest river, bubbles to the surface at The Shannon Pot a pool in the karst landscape near Cuilcagh Mountain in County Cavan. Located along the Blacklion to Glangevlin Road (R206) in West County Cavan, approximately 50 minutes away from Killeshandra. Walk along the Cavan Way a long-distance walking route from Blacklion to Dowra.

This location can be traced back to the legendary Finn MacCool and the Fianna, the great warriors of Irish mythology. Legend has it that it is named after Síonnan, the daughter of Lodan, a son of the Celtic God of the Sea, Lír. Discover the myths and legends that surround the sacred pool.

The Shannon Pot is located a few short miles from the prehistoric landscapes of  Cavan Burren Park, the Marble Arch Caves, Tullydermot Waterfalls, Moneygashel Cashel and many other Geopark sites.
