Day 5

Irish Famine Memorial & Garden of Celtic Saints

Take a trip into Irvinestown and visit the Irish Famine Memorial and Garden of Celtic Saints.  This is a wonderful free attraction full of interesting information about important times in our history. 

Necarne Castle

Necarne is a 17th Century castle and was the home of the D’arcy-Irvine family and is described as “one of the finest examples of Gothic revival architecture in Ireland” and is surrounded by 230 acres of lush fermanagh countryside with trails and paths to roam. 

Tickety Moo ice cream and farm

For icecream fans, just 4 miles from Irvinestown, you’ll find Tickety Moo farm and ice cream parlour. 

Eating Out

The Woodhill Hunting Lodge offers sit in or take away meals. Their service and food are both outstanding. Their Sunday lunches are legendary – go hungry! Book though as it’s very popular.

“One of the best stays we have had. Such a gem.

Well worth a stay!” Maria

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.
