Florence Court is a truly welcoming home. The house was formerly the home of the Cole family.

Located around eight miles from Enniskillen, Florence Court is one of the most beautiful Georgian houses in Ulster, nestled against the wild mountain backdrop of Benaughlin and the Cuilcagh Mountains.

Outside there are scenic and restful gardens, a play and picnic area with extensive walks across the demense; and inside enjoy a fascinating upstairs-downstairs tour of the house to uncover the story of the Cole family and their working Irish estate.

The house and demense, formerly the home of the Earls of Enniskillen (Cole Family) is one of the most important Georgian Houses (18th century) in Ireland, and holds a fascintating collection of Irish Furniture and some of the best Rococo plasterwork in Ireland. You can enjoy glorious walks around the grounds which include a pretty walled garden, holiday cottage, sawmill and ice house.

In the gardens you will find the famous Florence Court Yew - reputedly the 'parent' of all Irish yew trees. 'Living History Tours' provide an entertaining insight into 1920s Florence Court and there is also a children’s playground and picnic area.

Florence Court Forest Park also provides visitors with access to 15 km of trails which have easy-to-understand signage. The trails suit a variety of abilities and there is also a bridle trail for horse riders.
