Mini guide to Enniskillen


Enniskillen lies in the middle of County Fermanagh on a natural island between the Upper and Lower sections of picturesque Lough Erne. Situated in southwest Northern Ireland, visitors are attracted to Enniskillen by its rich history, fine old buildings and huge range of activities on the lough.

Set on the banks of River Erne, medieval Enniskillen Castle is one of Enniskillen's major attractions and encompasses several 19th century barracks buildings. To the south is the 17th century Watergate, with its huge turrets, while there is also a heritage centre nearby.

Main Street lies at the centre of the town where Enniskillen's two main churches can also be found: the 19th century St MacCartan's Church of Ireland Cathedral, with its collection of bells, and St Michael's Church, with its steep roof. The Town Hall is the focus of Enniskillen and is a striking landmark owing to its huge clock tower.

Opportunities for shopping in Enniskillen are numerous and include the Ernside Shopping Centre and the Buttermarket, a craft and design centre, while the local specialist shops on Main Street are sure to entice visitors along with the street's small bars and cafés. For those who enjoy dramatic performances, the Ardhowen Theatre provides some night time culture.

Lough Erne stretches for about 40 miles and is linked to Ireland via the Shannon-Erne Waterway Canal. There is much heritage on the various islands of the waterways, while Belleek Pottery, Ireland's oldest pottery, is also nearby and includes a museum and gift shop. The nearby Marble Arch Caves are also worth a look.

Enniskillen is about 90 minutes drive from Belfast along the M1 motorway and A-4 and Translink buses depart from Dublin International Airport at 10:50 daily and from Belfast City Hall at 14:00, while Ulsterbus also runs similar services.
