Chapter One


Situated conveniently on the outskirts of Cavan town, Chapter One has become a favourite for locals and visitors alike, for its friendly ambience, its wide selection of beautiful home interiors and giftware, and extensive restaurant menu.



Chapter One is a concept store, opened in June 2018 by Grainne and Ciaran Hourican. The couple wanted to bring a beautifully designed alternative experience, which would entice visitors from across the country to enjoy the perfect blend of a unique shopping experience coupled with high quality food in a comfortable environment. This store offers a vast selection of giftware, jewellery and home furnishings, along with a fantastic array of food, all created onsite by our highly trained team of chefs. Chapter One is more than just shopping, it’s an experience.

One you can enjoy with family and friends alike. To search your perfect gift why not visit our online shop?

Lots of lovely spacious seating and lovely warm homely atmosphere. The staff are helpful and friendly and will help with all your needs. Last but nit least are the beautiful artisan crafts on sale. Perfect for gifts.

The best of the best, Chapter One is an example of how to run a business. Staff are friendly and efficient, but the food is on another level. And it being Christmas time, who could resist warm mince pies with brandy cream? Chapter One is an absolute gem

Best lunch I've had in ages. The middle Eastern chicken on flatbread was delicious! My other half had the filled potato skins and loved it! We also got two almond scones for breakfast tomorrow. Despite being a really really busy Saturday lunchtime - the staff were courteous, helpful and ultra efficient. Can't recommend this place enough! We'll be back!
