Accessible tourism in Cavan

Cavan town was also the proud receipient of an EDEN World Responsible Tourism award in 2014 in the category 'Best for People with Disabilities'
Brian Seaman's insight:

Take a look at this film. Whilst being in a delightful and beautiful setting, does it actually tell you enough about accessibility in Cavan, Ireland to make you want to spend your Euros there? There is no in-depth look at accommodation in the area, and there are no useful subtitles or text to accompany this film. Something of a wasted opportunity I'm sorry to say.
