Programme of Events

As Chairperson of Fermanagh How to find us and Omagh District Council, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2nd annual Festival Lough Erne event.

Festival Lough Erne celebrates all that’s great about Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, showcasing the lakelands and waterways and our quality local produce. Over the course of the weekend,

 you will be able to sample the culinary delights created by a host of guest chefs using produce sourced from within the district all delivered from our new base at the newly refurbished Enniskillen Castle.

There is also a number of water-based activities for all ages and abilities and I would urge everyone to give these activities a try.

Our District has so much to offer and the Council believes that by working in partnership with other key stakeholders, the potential of the area can be maximised. I am confident that Festival Lough Erne will once again prove to be a great success.
