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

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.

Went with my 10 yr old son was very good way to spend the morning. He enjoyed the dressing up and looking at the military vehicles .Only criticism if it could be called that was the prize at the end of the quiz the castle sets you out Other than that we enjoyed our time visiting here

If you are interested in military history, Enniskillen Castle is the place to go. If military history is not your cup of tea, no reason to visit the castle. Enniskillen town center is interesting, though. Would recommend a walk through of that.

We had a great fun day out with our nephew. We were very impressed with the play area at the Lakeland Forum and at the Round O. The equipment was very new and well kept, The area was clean and well maintained.

We visited Enniskillen Castle but unfortunately we left it a bit late to go and we didn't have enough time to see everything because it was nearly closing time. We would leave at least an hour and a half or maybe more to see this beautiful place next time.

The most interesting part was the military display in the old tower that is a museum within a museum. The whole place is good for a few hours although I felt that with a little effort far more could be made of the attraction. It lacked 'spark and vigour' and need better display information and perhaps some background sound and... More
