Enniskillen and the Fermanagh Lakelands

This island town lies on the banks of the River Erne, between Upper and Lower Lough Erne, and is Fermanagh's largest. Its aquatic setting boasts boat trips to Devenish Island and its medieval Round Tower and is the gateway to the scenic Shannon-Erne Waterway.

Head for the town centre’s Buttermarket, a beautifully restored 19th cobbled courtyard of artists’ spaces encircling a popular cafe. Then delve into the high street’s various independent shops, stopping for a pint at the historic and ornate Blakes of the Hollow pub, close to the magnificent St Michael's Catholic Church and St. Macartin's Church of Ireland Cathedral.

The town’s rich local and military past is commemorated in Enniskillen Castle’s Fermanagh County Museum and The Inniskillings Museum.

Beyond the town, sightseeing highlights include the Marble Arch Caves (open seasonally), world-renowned Belleek Pottery and the National Trust properties of Florence Court, Crom and Castle Coole. Just outside the city is the Ardhowen Theatre with its year-round programme of live entertainment.
