Enniskillen Castle

Enniskillen Castle overlooks the Erne River.  Originally built by the Maguires in the 16th century it now houses the Fermanagh County Museum. 

St Michael’s Church

Dominating the centre of Enniskillen, this soaring church dates to 1875.  It is adorned with lavish artwork and intricate ornamentation. 

St Macartin’s Cathedral

St Macartans Cathedral was originally built in 1627 and was part of the fabric of the original building of the town of Enniskillen.

Castle Coole

Castle Coole is one of the greatest neo-classical country houses in Ireland. Built to impress by the first Earl of Belmore, it still has the ability to leave people in awe. Great walks and a nice tearoom too.

The Ardhowen is situated on a beautiful panoramic lakeside setting on the outskirts of Enniskillen and claims to be the only theatre in the UK that can be accessed by water. Enjoy live performances via their Facebook page during Covid Closure.

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.

“An absolute gem of stay. Anita was very helpful, the location was perfect, very close to amenities but also far enough away to feel like a relaxing retreat. On a personal level I loved taking a morning stroll down to the jetty and just swinging my legs off the side while drinking my coffee. Not many places where you can do this. Highly recommend.” Johnny

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.
