Fermanagh County Museum at Enniskillen Castle has reopened after undergoing a £3.5 million redevelopment. 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 and Fermanagh Visitor Information Centre. Opening Hours Monday to Friday (all year round): 9.30am* - 5.00pm Saturdays (all year round): 11.00am - 5.00pm Sundays (Jun to Sept): 11.00am - 5.00pm Bank Holidays - 9:30am* - 5:00pm Closure period - Enniskillen Castle will be closed over the Christmas & New Year holiday period. *9.30am opening for new visitor centre and 10:00am for other buildings Admission

Have been here twice before and each time it's gets better and better, the staff are all very friendly and helpful, the exhibits are wide ranging, the military part was very interesting and well displayed. The addition of a coffee shop was a good idea and well worth a stop after the walk around . It was good to see... More

The castle and museums are really worth a visit. Interesting exhibits with lots of information available and very knowledgeable staff. We particularly enjoyed visiting the Museum of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers in the very atmospheric Castle Keep.

Bright, clean centre with three museums focusing on the cultural, military and social history of enniskillen. Spent two and a half hours here and could have spent more. Well worth a visit.

This is a good attraction for those interested in history and the war. The room full of medals etc is fascinating. However the walk through the courtyard to get to the other stages is very open and extremely cold so puts a downer on the overall experience.

We walked across the bridge over the castle a couple of times over the weekend without realising this was enniskillen castle! Thought there would be more to it...just one castle-like tower. Weren't enticed to go into the courtyard to be honest, didn't seem to be much worth seeing

Paid £5 to get in and was not worth going even if it were free. Was no history on the castle itself, and the museum for the Inniskilling Regiment was very underwhelming. I went as I had ancestors who fought and died in this regiment in the World Wars. I know this is where they keep all the information on... More
