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.

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

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

When in Enniskillen I never miss a visit. The military part of the Museum is outstanding could spend hours there alone. The other part of the museum is very good also.

Great exhibits which were well displayed and easy to follow. The display of regimental silver is truly stunning - just glad I don't have the job of cleaning it. The Information regarding the history of the buildings and regiment was extremely interesting. I particulary liked the personal history of those awarded the VC in various acts of bravery. Staff we...

Anyone interested in Military History especially on the famous Enniskillen Regiments like the 27th foot or the Enniskillen Dragoons. This is the place to spend a few hours!! They have a fantastic collection of items relating to these regiments especially the Waterloo era and the Crimea period although it covers Korea and Iraq etc. The keep is where I found... More

Spent Sunday and Monday in Enniskillen and still couldn't get into the place as it was closed on Sunday and didn't open until 1400 on Monday? It seemed that walking along the banks of the river at the castle was a H&S issue as it was all fenced off !! Ended up giving it a miss as we could only... More

We had no intentions of visiting this castle. We happened to be driving and noticed it and stopped in. I am so happy that we did! They have a great museum that details the history of the area very well. Really great to visit and learn more.
