Three local National Trust Estates:-
Florence Court - (6 miles away)) An 18th century property, the former home of the Earls of Enniskillen. Glorious walks, a charming walled garden. Every aspect of life in this classical Irish house, with its fine interiors and exquisite decoration, are brought to life on fascinating guided tours. Outside there are numerous places to explore, including sawmill, ice house and thatched summerhouse.
Castle Coole - (8 miles away) experience the stately grandeur of this stunning 18th-century mansion set in a beautiful wooded landscape park – ideal for family walks. Castle Coole is one of Ireland's finest Neo-classical houses, the sumptuous Regency interior, and the State Bedroom prepared for George IV, provides a rare treat for visitors, allowing them to glimpse what life was like in the home of the Earls of Belmore.
Crom Estate - (? miles away) 2000 acres of ancient woodland, tranquil islands, estates cottages. One of Ireland's most important nature conservation areas. Hire a boat and explore the islands. Have a go at coarse angling or pike fishing. Enjoy woodland walks and nature trails.
Lough Erne is one of the most spectacular tourist destinations in Europe and offers unspoilt cruising waters with large areas of lake and river and few boats. Unlike parts of mainland Europe, there is no commercial traffic to avoid - just you, your boat and nature.
Marble Arch Caves (3 miles away) - one of Europe's finest show caves allowing visitors to explore a fascinating natural underworld of rivers, waterfalls, winding passages and lofty chambers. Located at Florencecourt, the cave complex has good car parking, a souvenir shop, restaurant, exhibition area and an audio visual theatre. The caves are situated in a National Nature Reserve. Tours of the caves last approximately 75 minutes and are suitable for people of any age of average fitness, starting with an underground boat trip, after which your trained guide will conduct you through a variety of cave formations, including the "Moses walk" which must be seen and experienced to be fully enjoyed
Devenish Island Monastic Site - (4 miles away) followed by a short ferry trip. Catch the ferry and travel across the waters of Lough Erne at Trory and visit the island which is home to a 12th century round tower and many historical features including a ruined Augustinian abbey with figures and sculptures. The round tower stands at 30 metres (100ft) tall – internal ladders inside the tower mean the visitor can climb to the top and marvel at the spectacular views.
Belleek Pottery - (? miles away) established in 1857 Belleek Pottery holds a very special place in the cultural and commercial heritage of County Fermanagh. Nestling on the banks of the River Erne this imposing building is home to the world famous Belleek Fine Parian china and also to one of Irelands top five visitor attractions.
Castle Archdale Country Park - (15 miles away) beautiful country park extends to cover 230 acres along the shores of Lower Lough Erne. The park boasts an abundance of nature trails and woodland and lough side walks. There is also a butterfly garden, wildflower meadow and deer enclosure. Boats are available for hire for those wishing to explore the nearby islands.
Lough Navar Forest Park (? miles away) - rises to the top of the Magho cliffs at a height of 1,000 ft. Spectacular views over Lower Lough Erne, Donegal Bay, the Blue Stack and Sperrin Mountains. A seven mile long drive has been created to allow the public to enjoy this scenery. Car parking facilities, picnic areas, viewpoints and short walks to interesting features have been provided. The Ulster Way, rising to a height of 800 ft passes through the forest. On the other side of the road from the Forest Entrance is the start of the Correl Glen Nature Trail which runs through part of the extensive Largalinny National Nature Reserve. This Reserve contains some rare plants and almost all the Irish native species of butterfly.
Views from the top of Cuilcagh Mountain (4 miles away) are second to none.
Just 4 miles away is the historic town of Enniskillen which has a population of approximately 15,000. The town itself is quaint with many family businesses still in existence. Housing an award winning butcher, fresh fruit and vegetable establishments and quite a few excellent restaurants and bars.
Mobile Food Guide Review of Café Merlot at Blake’s of the Hollow - A classic boozer and a must-visit pub on the tourist trail, Blake's of the Hollow has been in the same family since 1887 and is still renowned for its cracking atmosphere, pints of Guinness and Irish coffees. The original Victorian bar remains untouched, but there's a great deal more to this Tardis-like place than simply a fine boozer.
Downstairs is Café Merlot, a cosmopolitan bistro with ornate stonework, vaulted ceilings and a forward-looking menu with global aspirations. Fresh seafood, dry-aged Irish beef and a raft of other ingredients are subjected to confident, imaginative treatment – witness grilled loin of rare-breed pork with creamed leeks and balsamic lentils or roast fillet of halibut with Thai curry and jasmine rice, for example.
At the very top of the building is No.6 – a fine-dining restaurant offering similar dishes in a more salubrious setting; the restaurant has limited opening hours, normally 6.00 – 10.00pm Fridays and Saturdays only. The wine list is Johnny Donnelly's pride and joy and it's packed with tantalising stuff.
Franco's Wine Bar - "a true gem and well worth a visit".
Scoff's Restaurant - Since opening its doors in 1999, Scoffs has developed from modest subterranean bolthole into a fully-fledged restaurant with a wine bar attached. Daily fish specials are one of the main attractions, and the kitchen can provide anything from grilled halibut with Mediterranean salad to lobster thermidor – depending on the seasonal catch.
Uno Wine Bar in the basement is a lively setting for drinks and bistro-style dishes.
Taste - A new modern, innovative and vibrant Bistro and Wine Bar set right in the heart of Enniskillen - excellent food.
Well worth a visit is celebrity chef Neven Maguire's "MacNean House and Restaurant" in Blacklion, Co Cavan. Although 30 minutes drive, this restaurant is a special treat and be advised that booking WELL in advance is highly recommended, especially if a weekend booking is desired.
Just 3 miles from the Golf Village is Portora Royal School which educated such esteemed men as Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett. Just beside the school is the Round O Quay from where many cruises may be embarked upon.
The Buttermarket Craft & Design Courtyard, in the centre of Enniskillen Town, comprises sixteen art and craft units housed in the restored early 19th century dairy market. The Buttermarket's unique position in the heart of Enniskillen makes it the central focus for the thriving craft industry in Fermanagh.
The Clinton Centre is situated on the site of the Remembrance Day bombing on 8 November 1987. Former USA President Bill Clinton gave his name to the facility in dedication to peace and prosperity in Ireland and around the world and has visited the site three times. The centre houses a fully equipped conference floor, a restaurant, internet cafe, art gallery and The Bridges Youth Hostel.
Enniskillen Castle, situated beside the River Erne in County Fermanagh, was built almost 600 years ago by Gaelic Maguires. Guarding one of the few passes into Ulster, it was strategically important throughout its history. In the 17th century it became an English garrison fort and later served as part of a military barracks. This historic site houses two museums, Fermanagh County Museum and The Inniskillings Museum.

"unsurpassed luxury in idyllic setting"
I booked this house as a birthday getaway for my husband & mum & the house far exceeded our expectations, especially as we have been involved in holiday rentals for over 10 yrs now. This house was the most luxurious & comfortable we have stayed in to date.
The welcome hamper was second to none & the house was the most comfortable & cosy we have ever experienced. The actual Lough Erne Resort was fabulous and the staff in the hotel were outstanding. I feel we have discovered a real treasure in this house & can't wait to return! Again, I would not hesitate to recommend this home most highly & we aim to return in the foreseeable future. An absolutely outstanding home! Thank you Moira & Alan!!!
