Things to see and do
One of the most amazing things about Enniskillen is its rich history. Enniskillen Castle was first built in the 15th century and has played a key role in the town ever since. The castle holds two museums: the Fermanagh County Museum explores the county's traditional rural life and local crafts; the Inniskillings Museum covers the military history of the region, displaying memorabilia dating back to the 17th century.
Stretch your legs with a leisurely 5km cycle to Castle Coole, on the very outskirts of the town. The Castle to Castle path is a beautiful way to take in Enniskillen’s scenery and Castle Coole won't disappoint either. The 18th century neo-classical mansion was home to the Earls of Belmore and a tour of the house shows you the grandeur of the family's living areas and the spartan practicality of the servants' quarters. Stop for tea in the little café, browse in the second-hand bookshop tucked away in what used to be the stables, enjoy a wander around the spectacular parkland and then turn your bike in the direction of Enniskillen again.
Back in the town there is plenty to see. Like The Buttermarket, a collection of 16 studios, galleries, shops and cafés in the heart of Enniskillen. Don’t miss Headhunters Barber Shop and Railway Museum, which is surely the only place you can see one of the largest collections of railway memorabilia and get a trim at the same time.
