Enniskillen Castle situated on the banks of the River Erne was built in the early 15th Century by the Maguire Chieftains who ruled Fermanagh at that time. Home to Fermanagh County Museum and The Inniskillings Museum, visitors to Enniskillen Castle can also enjoy seven new galleries which tell the story of the local area from prehistoric to modern times, including the recent excavation of the Drumclay Crannog in Enniskillen. The complex also boasts a stunning new purpose built visitor centre – with impressive views of Lough Erne and the Castle’s redeveloped grounds and gardens – with a genealogy service also available.

Founded in the 6th Century by St. Molaise, Devenish Island is located in Lower Lough Erne and is one of the finest monastic sites in Ireland. It is home to a perfect 12th Century round tower, several Church ruins, two graveyards and an unusual cross.
