Thursday Doors – Hotel Gardens, Cavan

Sorry I’ve not posted any Thursday Doors these past few weeks, my phone signal has been very erratic lately and we don’t have internet in the house. yet. I hope this post will make up for it, though.

The Slieve Russell Hotel is set in the most wonderful grounds you could imagine. For this week’s post I’ll take you on a walk around some of the gardens. Let’s start with the fountain that greets you at the entrance.

Then move on to one of the many walkways that take you through a well laid out landscape.

These steps lead you to a covered pathway.

You will find a bench at the end, where you can relax, surrounded by beautiful shrubs and foliage.

This is where we stumbled across another door, on a little cabin. Not sure what it is used for but it’s in a lovely setting.

Next week, we can continue our tour of these beautiful grounds and learn some of the history of the area. Thanks for your company and if you’d like to see more Thursday Doors, have a look at Norm’s blog

  2. Jean, this was a wonderful way to start my day, especially with cloudy skies, rain in the forecast, and work. I’d love to sit on that bench after wandering the paths.

    Such stunning gardens and they feel so relaxing. One of my favourite poems is “The Road Less Taken” and I love photos of paths and all they represent.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Friend, missed your cheerful presence at Thurs. Doors. Your intro line just made me realize how dependent we are on phone and internet lines.These gardens are so relaxing and peaceful!
    You still have your two “kids” at home?
    Didn’t check before I came here, but the name for my new blog is Junieper at – this is still Jesh StG (had to separate my old and this blog completely to get the max space from wordpress without having to pay).
