Guarding one of the few passes into Ulster, it was strategically important throughout its history. In the 17th century it became an English garrison fort and later served as part of a military barracks. This historic site houses two museums, Fermanagh County Museum and The Inniskillings Museum. « less

I have been visiting the Enniskillen area regularly for almost 30 years and have driven by this place so many times without visiting. On my last visit I said that I would not pass it again without going in. I had my military mad 17 year old son with me and he was delighted with it. I had no idea... More

Enniskillen Castle is a great combination of an 'old castle' within which you have a modern military museum. Some excellent artifacts (right up to present day) all of which you can get round in an hour or so. It does major on the local regiments but even so this is appropriate and doesn't detract from the overall appeal to anyone... More

Heavy on the local military history. This is good for the locals but a bit boring for the tourists. The grounds and surrounding area is beautiful, right on Lough Erne,

The displays were well done and not too complicated. Not a big museum but fills a couple of hours with a bit of education about the town. Loved the military vehicle display outside. Pity nowhere for refreshments.

A big part of the exhibit in the castle focuses on the long history of the local famed army regiments. There is a wealth of information on those units. It includes many detailed artifacts including medals and uniforms. If that sort of thing does not interest you, there is less reason to visit that part of the museum. There is... More

Very interesting tour of the 600 year old castle. Make sure you use a coupon available in coupon books at your hotel.

Lovely attraction. Interesting at all levels, adults and children alike. Lovely clue trail to make children seek out answers from displays and learn as they go. Not a large museum, 1 hour tops I expect with children. Just down the path from great park which is a good starting point as it gives a lovely view of the castle.
