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

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 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

Not really a castle, more of a small piece of a castle wall and manor house type building surrounded by a wall. A lot of military history of the local unit stationed there. Be aware that while they are opened each day, on Monday the museum does not open til 2:00p.

A museum in a small market town is never going to be the biggest in the world but for circa 4GBP, this was a cracking place to spend an hour on a wet afternoon in Fermanagh. Great history of the Regimental Association of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and some WW2 and Cold War pieces out the back. The main building... More

There is more to see than you would at first expect. We loved learning about the history of The Maguires. My daughter enjoyed finding the Easter chicks and solving the treasure hunt.
