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.

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

great for an afternoon stroll by the lake. Wish they had a cafe in it though as this would be such a cool setting to watch the world go by

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.

On the way from Dublin to Donegal I'd like to advise visit Enniskilen. The castle is not the best I have ever seen but it is on the river bank that make a view of castle very attractive.

My husband and I were on holiday in Fermanagh last week and made a visit to Enniskillen Castle and Museum. They are doing extensive renovation work to include a large gift shop, coffee shop and information centre. I'm not really sure what they normally charge for the museum but because of all the work they only charged us £2 each.... More

Visited this Museum in November 2014 and was delighted to find it open. It is a large old castle complex, in very good condition, on the banks of the river with three separate buildings dedicated to the museum; some of the other buildings are offices. The staff are very helpful and there is a small shop at the entrance desk.... More

An absolute must if you are interested in military history but really interesting if you're not! There is also an excellent exhibition of an archeological excavation of a 'Crannog' ( a manmade floating family dwelling or roundhouse in lough Erne dating from the very early centuries) which gives a fascinating insight into the reason for building such complicated dwellings.

Children and adults alike will find it interesting. Beautiful surrounds. River water ways. Also the forum near by is very nice on a dry day. The town of... More

great history of the military importance of the region . surprised there wasn't a little more reference to the Enniskillen remembrance bomb in 1987 and those who lost their lives and the subsequent impact on the peace process
