Rossahilly House is situated in its own private bay, overlooking Trasna and Car islands in Lower Lough Erne. Beyond these uninhabited islands lies the Nick Faldo Championship Course of Lough Erne which boasts Rory McIlroy as its touring professional.
Take yourself on a journey of discovery on this beautiful and peaceful waterway, to visit the 12th Century monastery of Devenish Island (viewable from Rossahilly) or the mystical carvings of White Island and the watery grave of the wartime Catalina sea planes.
For the more adventurous, the Fermanagh lakelands have become the first name in water sport activities - hosting the World Water Ski championships three years in a row or the superb Lough Fest featuring some of the world's best wakeboarders and guest appearance from Florida's Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team. Nearby Bundoran was the recent host of the European Surfing Championships.
National Trust properties are amongst the most spectacular anywhere and a must see for the sheer diversity of luxury living in a bygone era and superb family days out in their beautifully managed estates.
Northern Ireland is shaping up to be a world focus for festivals - visit the Titanic museum in Belfast (less than two hours drive) and the new Giants Causeway visitor exhibition. In the beautiful island town of Enniskillen, come to the annual Samuel Beckett Festival and explore his classroom and the cricket pitch where he excelled during his schooldays. Royal Portora was also the school of Oscar Wilde and with Fermanagh being the ancestral home of Rudyard Kipling and WB Yeats' homeland in the adjacent Co. Sligo - the northwest has a literary and cultural heritage that is second to none.
Recently the northwest of Ireland has become the focus of world golf with Rory Mcilroy, Darren Clarke, Padraig Harrington and Graham McDowell all regulars at the Lough Erne Championship course - Rossahilly House is directly viewable from the 7th and 9th greens!
For details and dates of all these and other events, please visit our Facebook page (linked from our website) or contact us directly.

This is a region steeped in history and culture, with plenty of National Trust properties nearby that are well worth a visit. Castle Coole is one of Ireland's finest neo-classical houses set amongst 700 acres of wood and parkland.
Another property that should not be missed is Florence Court. This impressive house was built in the mid 18th Century in the classical style and features a superb rococo dining room. If you want to stretch your legs then explore the parkland, garden and woodland surrounding the property.
You will be hard pushed not to be left impressed by the natural beauty of the region. Visit Marble Arch Caves, one of Europe's finest examples of showcaves. Located in the European Geopark of Cuilcagh Mountain Park, visitors to the caves can explore a fascinating underworld of rivers, cascades and winding passages. Back in the open air you can enjoy some breath-taking views over the county and further afield to the counties of Cavan, Leitrim, Sligo and Donegal.
Ireland's oldest pottery, Belleek Pottery, is also located nearby and has an award winning visitor centre. Belleek is famous for the distinctive for the Parian China creations and you can take a guided tour of the renowned company.

"Ideal for a family celebration"
Stayed at Rossahilly for a week as part of an extended family holiday ending with an 80th birthday celebration. The House was perfect for our needs, big enough so that we didn't feel crowded (the… More

"A week was not enough"
We wanted to go to Donegal but couldn't source a one-building property to suit our diverse 3-generation family so as a last resort we phoned Rossahilly. The advertised price was much higher than we have previously paid in many UK locations but we were offered a half-price deal, apparently because of a cancellation. What a wonderful piece of luck! The owner, who received us, is a lovely man and was helpful and accommodating.The house is secluded and you have to cross Enniskillen Airport to get to it, but it has easy access to a wide geographic area with loads of attractions to suit all tastes. Enniskillen is close for shopping and there is a convenience store at a nearby garage, while the Airport café serves a great no-nonsense meal. The location has wonderful views across Lough Erne; the sunsets are fantastic from the dining room or with a glass of wine in the conservatory and the living rooms are comfortable and cosy. The bedrooms are luxury indeed. There are 5 on the ground floor and 5 upstairs. Most have a sofa to relax on in private, each has its own en-suite facilities and two have Jacuzzi baths. Our youngest family unit had a self-contained suite to themselves which provided for mum and dad, two small boys and a baby. The five children (aged 13 to 5) had a large enclosed field area to play in, within sight of the house, and endless opportunities for hide and seek, football, cricket, treasure hunts, etc. When our week came to an end we were all reluctant to leave as we had by no means exhausted the possibilities and we all felt so much at home. It will be a hard act to follow.

"A spectacular home with amazing views and the price could not be beat!"
This home was just perfect for my family to stay in for the week. The price person was fantastic and you could never find something this amazing for such great value. The home itself was just remarkable. The floors, the fireplaces, the dining room, every bedroom and bathroom, the kitchen, everything was just gorgeous. In additional to all that you have a wonderful view of the lake. If we did it all over again this is exactly where we would stay without a doubt.

"Superb venue, surroundings and ambience"
We took Rossahilly for a family reunion for a party of 18 for a long weekend. The setting is superb with ever changing views across Lower Lough Erne. The accommodation is excellent with large bedrooms most en suite and with good views. We had local caterers to do the evening meals which were served in the elegant and large dining room. There is a large sitting room for conversation etc. The venue is great for expeditions around Fermanagh and into South Donegal. There is much to see and do in this lovely area. The interesting access across St Angelo airfield adds to the enjoyment.
All in all Rossahilly House is a great venue.

"Rossahilly offered a unique venue for our wedding, both the house itself and as a stunning site for our teepees."
We have seen Rossahilly in both the splitting sun and the miserable rain and the house lends itself to both amazingly. It is a perfect location to spend time with extended family as there are 9 bedrooms, all of which are ensuite. The house is so big that you do not disturb one-another and yet cosy in each of the rooms. The barn was a brilliant place to 'make our own' for our wedding ceremony, it is now a registered venue for Fermanagh Council. The grounds were an amazing setting for us to site our teepees. Everyone got to watch the everchanging sunset which made Lough Erne look so enchanting.
the location is great in terms of country parks, stately homes, shoreside walks as well as being only 5 minutes away from Enniskillen town centre. The only down fall with it (and to be honest was only because we had a large group of wedding guests (150) was that the crossing of the runway became an issue due to the signage being at that gate. If the airport want drivers to go around the runway the sign for Rossahilly really should be at the other gate and clearer instructions. To be honest I can't see that being an actually problem though with only houseguests.
The owners of the house were great hosts and helped with our arrangements from start to finish and even since then!
Thank you so much for your lovely review and again for choosing Rossahilly as your wedding venue. The weather certainly played its part and we hope all your guests enjoyed themselves. We must be the only wedding venue that has a small, private airfield on its doorstep. Our guests have the option of taking a scenic flight by sea-plane directly from the House or even a flying lesson in a plane or helicopter. Feedback from our guests suggests this is a large part of the Rossahilly experience and makes it truly unique. We constantly review access arrangements for large functions and email all our guests comprehensive directions together with our telephone number in case of any queries. We ask this to be forwarded to all wedding guests thereby ensuring a failsafe system. It has certainly proved to be a memorable talking point with young and old alike. Thank you again for your kind comments and we look forward to welcoming you and your family again in the future.
