Description: Enniskillen Castle, situated beside the River Erne in County Fermanagh...
Enniskillen Castle, situated beside the River Erne in County Fermanagh, was built almost 600 years ago by Gaelic Maguires. 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.

Small but packed historical museum

Packed full of history about the area, the castle and the military regiment that used the castle for hundreds of years.

The Enniskillen Castle is primarily a homage to the local heroes of past wars. Very little funds were employed in the assembly and presentation of the items. I strongly recommend that you visit the nearby Marble Arch Caves and visit a local pub before spending any time at the castle.

The castle/ museum was undergoing some renovation work at the time of our visit. It was only opened in the afternoon - just check the opening times before you go. We spent a very enjoyable and informative afternoon there with our 8 year old daughter. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is a quiz for children to do as... More

Family trip as 1 child had been recently with school! Very cheap entrance fee (think about £5 for the family). Lots to see/read about including German artefacts. Great to know that this is being preserved - a lot of the exhibits have came from family members of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. Maybe not as modern or gimmicky as some museums... More

While we have been here a couple of times in the past we enjoyed coming back again with family members over from America. The main building/museum was closed while renovations are taking place but the Tower and Inniskilling military museum was open to visitors and we certainly enjoyed that. It looks like work at building a new part of the... More

Arrived at the castle car park approx 10.30 on a Tuesday morning hopeing for empty spaces. Unfortunately met several other cars driveing round looking for the same thing. Left the car park looking for other car parks which eventually found. The Main Street was also full though due to the bad parking many more cars could have parked there. Took... More
