You have more than one route option from Cavan to Galway so I'll assume you want to take the fastest route.
I'm not sure why you've mentioned Lisdoonvarna? It's certainly not on the way to Galway and is quite some distance from that city.
If you take the N55 and M6 you could stop at:
1.Granard to see the motte & bailey castle

and to visit the 'Knights & Conquests' heritage centre:

2. Athlone to explore its historical centre, waterside, pubs & shops (I'm sure there are some antique shops too):

3Aughrim near Gortaderry to visit the Battle of Aughrim Centre:  https://www.galway.ie/en/services/leisure/aughrim/
4.Athenry for its Norman street-plan, its castle, its association with the famine song 'The Fields of Athenry' and its excellent heritage centre: https://www.athenryheritagecentre.com/index.php/athenry-history
5. And you could make a short diversion to Oranmore to see its castle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oranmore
