MacNean Restaurant is definitely worth a visit. Neven Maguire, the chef there makes great use of local ingredients. His wife, Amelda, manages the restaurant. They are both incredibly nice and would be great to chat to about local produce etc. It is quite a distance, right up on the border with Fermanagh, but the countryside is very interesting around there and a bit of a time capsule (old style filling stations etc) which I quite like.

The Olde Post Inn in Clover Hill may also be worth a visit, although I haven't been. Gearoid Lynch has some serious experience behind him and they are really starting to push the boat out now that they are opened 5 years (added a pastry kitchen and new hardwood conservatory for pre-dinner drinks). They do some interesting dishes like stuffed pigs' trotters.

Another place that may be of interest is Pol O'D Restaurant in Ballyconnell.

From a cheese POV, there is an outstanding cheesemaker in Cavan: be sure to check out Corleggy and some of the other cheeses from Silke Cropp.
