Lough Navar Forest Drive offers stunning views of Lough Erne alongside wonderful forest walks and the possibility of a variety of wildlife sightings. Lough Achork Walk, Blackslee Walk, Magho Cliffs Walk and Navar Lakes Walk.
Belleek Pottery is the oldest working pottery in Ireland located in the quaint village of Belleek. The perfect place to pick up a gift or enjoy refreshments.
‘Hasett’s Fort’ was an early 17th century castle built by Francis Blennerhasett. It was renamed Castle Caldwell after James Caldwell purchased it in 1671 and is located on a peninsula estate. Fabulous walks alongside lough Erne including The Beechwood Walk and Rossergole Point Walk.
Belleek Village and Eating Out
Belleek Pottery has a cafe. In the main street there is Lemon Tree Coffee House and The Thatch. For authentic Irish gifts check out Gilmartin’s Craft Shop.
Shamrock Cottage is cleaned and sanitised between guests. I want to ensure that you feel safe walking in to stay at our cottage.
We have a flexible cancellation policy in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, to ensure you feel comfortable to book your stay and reassured should you need to cancel.
Shamrock Cottage overlooks Lower Lough Erne and the cliffs of Magho in Co. Fermanagh situated midway between Belleek and Kesh. Experience solitude and tranquility sitting by the jetty and listening to the water lapping at your feet; you can soak in the atmosphere, fish or launch your canoe and explore the calming waters. You can walk around the gated 7 acres of young woodland and see the hares bounding across the grass, hear the buzzards calling and the swans taking flight across the lake.
Shamrock Cottage has NITB 5 star grading offering you the highest standard in self catering accommodation. You can have up to 6 guests staying, but unfortunately we cannot accept pets as we are beside farmland with sheep and cattle. Our minimum 2 night stay from September to June and minimum 4 night stay in July and August, includes a welcome pack plus firewood for the lounge fire or fire pit outside, and gives you time to relax as well as explore our area. Relax at Shamrock Cottage from £199 per night subject to availability.
