Date and Oatmeal Bars
These bars are very popular in our Bed and Breakfast in Co. Cavan, the kids love them in their lunch boxes or guests enjoy them in the afternoon with a cup of coffee, much better and healthier than the shop bought variety . Very easy to make, keep excellent in an air tight container or can be frozen and used at a later date.
Create marvellous family memories by enjoying an afternoon at the charming Silver Bear Centre when Mammy, Daddy and all the family create their own individual teddy bear from start to finish including designing their own Teddy Bear outfits for their own precious creations to bring home with them. This unique family experience is in one of Ireland’s best-kept secrets – West Cavan. The unspoiled landscape has something for everyone, whether it’s rest, relaxation or a family activity for all to enjoy. Come spend time at Lake Avenue House B&B and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Irish country side while you create your own Teddy Bear!

Rhubarb-Lake Avenue House B&B
Picked our first Rhubarb for the year yesterday, made a Rhubarb Crumble using the Recipe I posted here last year, just lovely. This is a new bed of Rhubarb I started about 2 years ago, great to see it doing so well. I found a Rhubarb Muffin Recipe that I have been dying to try out, hope to make it next week. If successful it would be a new item to add to our Bed and Breakfast menu.
Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann takes place from August 19-21, 2011 and will be held in Cavan Town – This is the first time that the All-Ireland Fleadh has returned to the Ulster Town since that memorable Fleadh back in 1954.
Really good article in the Boston Irish Reporter on reasons to visit and stay in an Irish Bed and Breakfasts, visit Lake Avenue House Bed and Breakfast and enjoy some of County Cavan’s finest hospitality
Like to Chat? An Irish B&B May Be the Best Place for You…..Last month, we wrote about Irish bed and breakfasts and how many of the owners have elevated B&B accommodation in Ireland to an art form. Our favorites, as outlined then, include: Cahergal Farm in Newmarket-on-Fergus…..Read more
Don’t let the word fudge in these brilliant and very easy to make muffins put you off, it is just golden syrup so they are not really sweet and when using whole wheat flour or wheat bran they are really good for you. I usually double up this recipe and it will make about 28 good-sized muffins.These muffins are very popular in my Bed and Breakfast both with my guests and my family, when baking they smell great, and are lovely both hot and cold. Another plus is that they freeze very well
