Focus on Fermanagh


Fermanagh is one of my favourite places to visit, there is so much to see and do for all ages – and some great shops if that’s your kind of thing. If you haven’t been there yet I’d suggest checking out the Discover Fermanagh Open Weekend which takes place on the first weekend in March and everything listed is free!

In the meantime to show you just how wonderful Fermanagh is here are some of my top picks. In no particular order:

Headhunters Railway Museum and Barbers. This place is amazing, the gents out there can get their hair cut in the museum and there is just so much to see. A must visit for any railway enthusiast.

Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark. Explore the natural underworld of rivers, waterfalls, winding passages in the stunning caves. Also check out the Cuilcagh Mountain walkway – a spectacular walk.

Enniskillen Castle. Situated on the banks of the River Erne and home to two museums this is well worth a visit.

Florence Court. A National Trust 18th Century home with beautiful gardens and forest walkways.

Blakes of the Hollow. One of Fermanagh’s oldest pubs with live music every Friday and home to one of the doors from The Game of Thrones.

Belleek Pottery. Established in 1857 and producing beautiful products. See the skilled craftspeople at work on the tour, visit the museum or grab some lunch in the gorgeous cafe.

Now for some ones on my ‘to do’ list:
Ardhowen Theatre, Boa Island, Devenish Island, Crom Estate, Castle Coole, explore the Blueway – kayaking, boat tours and so much more.

My favourite places to eat:
The Happiness Trap, Enniskillen – a fantastic vegetarian restaurant and they do Afternoon Tea!
Rebecca’s Coffee Shop, Buttermarket, Enniskillen. They do beans and cheese on toast!…and lots more.
The Jolly Sandwich, Darling Street, Enniskillen. Gorgeous cakes and so much to choose from.

I’ve never stayed the night in Fermanagh as we live quite nearby but there are some places that look fantastic:
Finnlough Bubble Domes. This place looks amazing, you sleep in the bubble! Imagine the photos! When I win the lotto I’m staying here.
Killyhevlin Lakeside Lodges, self-catering lodges on the shores of a lake and the perfect base for exploring Enniskillen.

I hope this has given you some ideas of things to do in Fermanagh, if you have any other suggestions let me know.
