Enniskillen, Ireland’s only island town, is the county town of Fermanagh. Enniskillen Castle, which was built 600 years ago by the Gaelic Maguires, was strategically important throughout its history, and now houses Fermanagh Visitor Information Centre, Fermanagh County Museum and the Inniskillings Museum. The site re-launched in August 2016. 7 new galleries interpret Fermanagh’s rich heritage and a genealogy service is available 3 afternoons/week. Café and Shop on-site.
During the town’s early expansion, bridges were constructed across the east and west fords onto the island, the church was set on the highest point, the Diamond and Market place on the next highest point of the island.
Present day amenities include the Enniskillen Town walk, accommodations, restaurants, cafes, pubs, shops, galleries, ample car and coach parking, a children’s playground and leisure centre.
Enniskillen Castle Museums have undergone major redevelopment, completed in 2016.
Major new galleries also opened in 2016, interpreting the county’s rich history as the Kingdom of Lough Erne, with its crannogs, castles and early Christian stone sculptures. Imaginative displays will celebrate local craftsmanship from Belleek Pottery, to the Full-Circle Art Gallery and the rural traditions of the Fermanagh hearth. There will be a changing programme of exhibitions and events throughout the year for everyone to enjoy.
