About the area

Discover County Fermanagh

Running right through the middle of County Fermanagh are the two parts of Lough Erne, the Upper and the Lower. The Lough’s shape has been likened to a leaping dolphin scattering a shower of broken water drops behind it.

At about 50 miles long, but only around 5 miles wide, Lough Erne is very shallow. The surrounding soil has resisted agriculture and remained a mixture of moorland, forest and marsh. The monastery established by St Molaise in the 6th century stands on Devenish Island, in the Lower part of the Lough. Here you’ll find a tall round tower, built by monks around 1120, the ruins of the beautiful little 15th-century abbey church and a fine high cross.

The largest town in Fermanagh is Enniskillen, set on an island in the middle of Lough Erne. The long main street is lined with shops, and features the historic Buttermarket, filled with local crafts, many of which you can see being made. Some of the many attractions in town include the castle with its regimental and county museums. There’s also Cole’s Monument in Forthill Park with a splendid view over the town.
