Lough Erne

A gateway to North West Ireland

Two lakes connect in Northern Ireland to form the majestic Lough Erne, a place steeped in local legend. 

 

 

 

Discover Lough Erne

Lough Erne compromises two connected Lakes in Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, and was likely named after an Irish tribe or Irish myth. In Irish mythology, goddesses often dissolved their power into bodies of water, so the divine power could in turn fuel the surrounding lands. This key tenet of Celtic legend likely influenced Lough Erne’s name.  

The pretty town of Enniskillen lies on a small island separating the Upper and Lower portions of the Lough. Enniskillen is the largest town in Fermanagh and is well worth the visit. A wonderful example of medieval castle ruins, Enniskillen castle has a 600-year history which has seen it go from medieval castle to plantation stronghold, to garrison fort, and now it’s a tourist attraction. Visit one of Ireland’s most magnificent examples of neo-classical architecture at Castle Coole, a manor house built in in the 1790s and located just a short drive from Enniskillen center.  

Along with a rich medieval history, Enniskillen also has an extensive literary history, as both Samuel Beckett and Oscar Wilde were educated there at the Enniskillen Royal School. Each year, a festival takes place to commemorate the time Beckett spent in the town, with readings and performances taking place alongside other events.
