Day 6

Devenish Island

Devenish Monastic Site was founded in the 6th century by Saint Molaise on one of Lough Erne’s many islands.  Its various structures can be date from the 6th, 12, 13th, 15th and 16th centuries. 

Castle Archdale country park

Situated on the shores of Lower Lough Erne, Castle Archdale Country Park has a variety of beautiful walks along the lough’s shore allowing you to explore the woodlands. Other attractions include cycle trails.  

Old Castle Archdale

Old Castle Archdale was built in 1615 by John Archdale, an English planter from Suffolk. He had been granted the estate, then called Tullana, in 1612 after he had paid 5 pounds, 6 shillings and 8 pence for the 1000 acres of land.

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.

“Cottage is absolutely amazing, everything you could need! Location is beautiful, so peaceful and serene. Will definitely be back, was so relaxing” Kelly

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.
