Lough ERne

Explore what nature has to offer on Lough Erne

Take a walk through Northern Ireland’s most iconic landscapes at Lough Erne. With its crystal-clear waters and picturesque surroundings, nature lovers will find a wealth of neighbouring walking trails and routes to follow, whereas a breadth of castles, museums and stately homes offer guests and families a historical experience they’ll never forget.

The infinite network of walking trails and routes have been rated as some of the most beautiful in all Europe, so it's not hard to see why so many people visit this area for their vacation every year.

Known as ‘The Stairway to Heaven’, Cuilcagh Mountain and its famous boardwalk allows hikers to traverse the rare, undisturbed bogland before reaching the summit with some of the finest views of the surrounding lowlands. 

For intrepid explorers, a labyrinth of dark chambers, winding passages and striking stalactites awaits at the The Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark. This is a UNESCO site, where visitors can tour the deep abyss via a boat ride along the underground river.

The enchanting forest of Lough Navar which stretches across 2,600 hectares of bog, evergreen trees and open water is a popular destination for walkers, while the ancient ash woodland trail of Cladagh Glen and spectacular coastal Wild Atlantic Way will lead you through Ireland’s untamed beauty.

Discover the past

Step back in time and re-discover Fermanagh’s ancient past. Surrounded by a vast number of noble estates, Lough Erne blends scenery, history and culture together, making it one of Northern Ireland’s most attractive locations for tourists. 

Explore the unique stories and exhibits within the Medieval walls of Enniskillen Castle, which served as a military base during World War 2, before being converted into two museums. Castle Archdale and Crom Castle are both iconic parklands home to a great variety of wildlife including deer, foxes, butterflies and birds to see as you stroll through the grounds. 

Florence Court is a landmark of Lough Erne regarded as one of the most influential National Trust Georgian houses in Ireland, with beautifully manicured gardens and miles of woodland to walk. Castle Coole is another grand neoclassical mansion deemed a National Trust treasure and both are only 10 minutes away from the house. 

Finally, the long-established Victorian pub, Blakes Of The Hollow, is a must-see attraction in Enniskillen. You can proudly drink a pint of Guinness at one of their Atrium bars, or dance to live music on Level 7. They also provide modern Irish cuisine from chef Glen Wheeler at 28 at The Hollow - one of the top 100 restaurants in Ireland.

A very well presented, superbly comfortable house. The owners are immediately responsive and thoughtful. We rented the house over the Christmas period; the owners had put up a Christmas tree for us and had the whole house heated before we arrived!

We loved how accommodating it was for us as a big family. It was well equipped for all of us (party of 10) during our stay. We loved the coffee machine and the beds are so comfortable. The communication with Claire before and throughout the trip was excellent.
