Festival Lough Erne, a two day celebration of the very best of local food and our beautiful Lakelands, is returning for a fourth year on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 September 2018.

The weekend will see a host of activity on and off the water with cookery demonstrations from guest chefs, local artisan food and drink producers and live entertainment, as well as a range of water based activities, all taking place at Enniskillen Castle, in the heart of Enniskillen town!

Other activity will include the Lough Erne Cot Regatta. This is a very unique occasion as it is the first time in the history of boat racing on Lough Erne that a regatta is being held to find the “Lough Erne Champion” from amongst all the towns and villages taking part. The cots will be racing along the River Erne right beside Enniskillen Castle.

Also on water there will be short boat trips with the Erne Water Taxi and Erne Boat Hire around the island town of Enniskillen. These are available to festival goers at no additional cost.

Festival goers will also enjoy children’s activities with the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark, street entertainers and live music from local bands and a display from Lough Erne Heritage providing a unique insight into the importance of the waterway in bygone years; all compered by Fermanagh’s own Bryan Gallagher.

Daily admission to Festival Lough Erne is only £2.00 per person and under 12s go free. Admission also includes entry to both museums on site at Enniskillen Castle.
