Oak Lodge is a four-bedroom centre located in the heart of the countryside with easy access to lots of outdoor activities as well as places of interest.

For our young people, this is a warm and spacious home to live in. The centre is modern, well-equipped and tastefully decorated; our young guests get actively involved in the decoration of their own rooms too.

We’re located just outside the small village of Ballinagh, and Cavan town is just up the road.


The centre sits in a green acre, allowing for sporting activities on site such as football, basketball and badminton. We also have sports clubs nearby so you can get involved in soccer, boxing, Gaelic football, martial arts and rugby.

We’re fortunate to have some wonderful countryside on our doorstep, not least the county’s 365 lakes. Our young people have the opportunity to connect with nature and enjoy activities such as fishing, swimming, canoeing and other outdoor pursuits, such as walking, hiking and running.

Places of interest

Our location puts a range of places of historical and geographical interest within reach. Local sites include Fore Abbey and the Stairway to Heaven next door in County Fermanagh. We also arrange trips to Northern Ireland to visit the Titanic Museum and to many other attractions.

“We have a great location, lovely house and staff who are supportive and non-judgmental.

They each bring their own experiences and personality to Oaklodge – that’s what makes it special.”
