Oldcastle is a centre for anglers and is about 6.4km from Lough Ramor (County Cavan) and 10km from Lough Sheelin. Sheelin is an excellent lake for trout and Ramor is noted for its coarse fishing. Traditionally, Oldcastle is the home for Irish music and dance and regular sessions, at every level, are held in the ceili house in the town. Loughcrew Demesne, an extensive park, covers a considerable part of the local countryside. The actual birthplace of Saint Oliver Plunkett is a subject for continual argument locally, but it is fairly certain that he was born in a house in the south east corner of the churchyard at Loughcrew. About 3.2km from Loughcrew Demesne is Dromone cross roads. Nearby are the remains of Moylagh church and castle.
