About Enniskillen

Located in County Fermanagh, the small and mostly rural town of Enniskillen sits in the heart of Northern Ireland. Enniskillen is surrounded by verdant countryside, ancient castles, epic lakes, and natural sites, including the mysterious Marble Arch Caves. Surrounded by splendid attractions, the town makes an excellent base for exploration. The town is around 90 minutes' drive from both Dublin and Belfast, busy hubs for domestic and international flights. If you prefer to take your car, you could use a ferry from mainland UK to Ireland.

What to see in Enniskillen

Hotels in Enniskillen provide the perfect opportunity to explore the rolling Irish countryside and some of the country's most notable castles and attractions. Start by visiting 18th-century Coole Castle. The former home of the Earls of Belmore, the castle is set on attractive grounds and boasts an impressive Regency interior. Step back in time even further, by 600 years, with a visit to Enniskillen Castle. Spend a day exploring the structure and its two onsite museums, Fermanagh County Museum and the Inniskillings Museum.

Located close to Enniskillen is vast Lough Erne, two interconnected lakes offering a range of activities – rent a boat or join a glass-bottomed boat tour, go horseback riding or go-karting, or tour the subterranean Marble Arch cave complex. Enniskillen's centre also has a small but eclectic range of bars and restaurants to enjoy in the evening. Other attractions in town include Belle Isle School of Cookery, where you can learn the tricks and trade of local Irish cuisine; Ardhowen Theatre, which stages a range of plays and musicals; and the Buttermarket Art, Craft & Design Centre, which houses several stalls and shops. Remember to leave some time for souvenir shopping!

Where to stay in Enniskillen

The centre of Enniskillen, located on the eastern banks of the River Erne, is small enough to traverse on foot. Opting for an Enniskillen hotel in the centre places you close to many of the town's attractions and offers excellent views over the River Erne. If you don't mind staying outside the centre, you'll likely find cheap hotels, but you may need to use public transportation or drive yourself.

There are some country hotels along the northern parts of the river, such as Trory and Ballicassidy, with excellent access to both Enniskillen and Lough Erne. And if you're planning to spend most of your time by Lough Erne, consider one of the hotels on the shore – you'll be treated to an idyllic location and fantastic views. Whereas Lough Erne's southern end brushes the centre of town, the northern end, close to the Irish border, is around 30 minutes' drive from Enniskillen's centre.
