2 Crom Castle, County Fermanagh
Part of the thrill of staying in a castle is playing the aristocrat. And at Crom Castle, you won’t just be living like a lord or lady, you’ll be living right next door to them. The Earls of Erne have called Crom home for generations, and the 7th Earl has opened up the West Wing of the family home to visitors looking for a taste of old-world elegance.
Of course, you’re staying in a lakeside castle, so a boat trip is a must. Crom is right on the shores of Lough Erne, known for its many tiny forested islands. Once you're back on dry land again, you can explore the stunning parkland, discover the ruins of the original Crom Castle and marvel at the two ancient, gnarled yew trees, said to be the oldest in Ireland. That’s what we call a classic Crom Castle day.
