About this location
The County Fermanagh region
Driving into the village from the south, one is greeted initially by the Stone Circle at the entrance to the village. This is actually a modern construction designed by the residents of the village to both highlight the Celtic heritage of the area and make Tempo more distinctive. It is very effective, providing a striking image.
Beyond the Stone Circle, the Parish Church sits high above the road, dominating the skyline, and the village of Tempo and Tempo Maguires Gaelic Athletic Club, currently one of Fermanagh's most successful teams.
Tempo Manor is a Victorian Manor House, built in 1863 and standing in 300 acres (1.2 km2) of beautiful grounds and woodlands.
County Fermanagh is the westernmost of the six counties that form Northern Ireland, and the westernmost part of the United Kingdom. Fermanagh is often referred to as Ireland's Lake District. The county is approximately 120 km (75 mi) from Belfast and 160 km (99 mi) from Dublin.
The name Fermanagh has been variously translated as the 'district of the Monks' or as the 'place of the men of the Manaigh tribe' so named after their chief.

Enniskillen is the County Town of Fermanagh, located almost exactly in the Centre of the County on the natural island which separates the Upper and Lower sections of Lough Erne. The town is home to a population of approximately 11,500, by far the largest settlement in the County. As one would expect, the town is a retail centre for the County, and beyond, but it has yet to succumb to the blandness which infects many modern towns.
The town centre is firmly built along the long, narrow Main St, which actually changes name six times along its length! This gives the town a real sense of bustle and life as well as imbuing the shops with their own unique character. There is no new, anonymous, development to be found on the Main Street and the established High Street Stores sit comfortably beside small independent traders, creating a special atmosphere for the place. A feature of Enniskillen which is becoming increasingly unusual is the number of small bars and hostelries which appear on the Main Street, providing welcome relief from the shops!
At the centre of the town is the Town Hall, which was completed as recently as 1901. The Clock Tower here is six stories high and can be seen from everywhere, complete with its statues marking the proud military heritage of the Town. The Bandstand outside the Town Hall is used regularly through the Summer and works well to add to the impression that this is a very warm and unusual retail centre.
At the west end of the Main Street can be found the town’s two main Churches. St. MacCartan’s Church Of Ireland Cathedral dates from 1842. Inside, General Lowry Cole, who also overlooks the town from his Column in the Town Park, is commemorated. The Cathedral is noted for its Bells, with one in particular being cast from a cannon used in the Battle of the Boyne. St Michael’s RC Church is opposite St. MacCartan’s, on the other side of the Main Street, and dates from 1875. The building has a steep roof and is actually best viewed from the rear. Inside a window portrays St Molaise, founder of the Devenish Monastery.
One of the key images that a visitor to Enniskillen may take home with them is the proximity of Lough Erne to the town. Moorings just outside the town centre certainly ease the pressure for parking spaces and add a continental feel to the town.
These moorings are also close to Enniskillen’s Erneside Shopping Centre. Erneside has a number of High Street Stores, including Marks & Spencer, Argos and Next and there are now large ASDA and Tesco Supermarkets in the same area of town – all your shopping needs are within walking distance of the Town Centre.
Further down the Lough is the Ardhowen Theatre, Fermanagh’s own cultural entertainment centre, which boasts a full and varied program of entertainment.

we stayed in this house for a week around the time of our sons wedding in Enniskillen and it was very comfortable.The on suite bathroom was very useful on the morning of the wedding and the location was very convenient for guests to visit in the days before the wedding. We had our little dog with us which was great although we left her in kennels on the wedding day. We had everything we needed in the house, plenty of sheets and towels and we cooked meals for the family several times.We thought the house was lovely.

A group of six of us stayed in the cottage as we were attending a wedding in Enniskillen - everything was fantastic. The rooms were spotless, there was loads of towels and linen and two bathrooms which was a big help for the girls getting ready on the big day! It was only a short taxi drive away from the Killyhevlin Hotel which made it easy for us to get to the wedding and back again. The only thing I would say to remember is directions to give the taxi drivers as some get a bit lost. It also has a big garden and lots of space for parking.
