Set on the shores of Upper Lough Erne in County Fermanagh, Crom is one of Ireland's most important nature conservation areas.

Wild deer, pine marten (who are a member of the weasel family) and many rare species including butterflies can all be found on the estate. Also inhabiting the surrounding area are all eight species of native bats and an outstanding array of rare lichens. The 2,000 acre demesne contains ancient woodland, tranquil islands, estate cottages and Old Crom Castle, all linked by the breathtakingly beautiful landscape designed by W.S.Gilpin in the 19th century.

Enjoy an inspirational walk through the woodland and along the nature trails, where you can also enjoy spectacular views from the water if you hire a boat or canoe.

If you are enjoying a boating holiday along the Shannon-Erne Waterway there is a jetty for boats to stop at. For the fishing enthusiasts there is an opportunity to partake in coarse angling and pike fishing.

On the estate itself there are historic buildings, holiday cottages and a campsite, children’s play area and wildlife exhibition.

We now have five Glamping Pods which cost £65 per night. We also have three dog-friendly Pods. The pods can accommodate families of two adults and up to three children with two single beds and plenty of floor space for a air bed or two. They are equipped with lighting, heat, kettle, microwave, electric points

and table and chairs.
