Description

Enniskillen Castle, picturesquely situated beside the River Erne, was built almost 600 years ago by the ruling Gaelic Maguires. In the seventeenth century, it became an English garrison fort and later served as part of a military barracks. The historic site houses two museums, Fermanagh County Museum and the Inniskillings Museum.

 

The site was transformed by a £3.5 million development a few years ago and it now offers a state-of-the-art Visitor Centre with a combined tourism, heritage and genealogy service. The new state-of-the-art Visitor Centre includes a café, shop and discovery space with panoramic views.

The new facilities include seven new galleries interpreting Fermanagh’s unique culture and heritage. The history of the area is moulded by the waterway, creating the great spine of Co Fermanagh. This is reflected in three of these new galleries within the Castle – The two Lakeland Galleries. The Island Town gallery traces the history of the town, its railways, shops, newspapers and wider development with others including the Full Circle Art Gallery, housing an important collection of pieces by internationally acclaimed artists with local connections.

Enniskillen Castle houses displays telling the story of its Maguire clan origins and The Inniskillings Museum takes the visitor on a journey through more than 300 years of military heritage. The museum houses a rich collection of personal treasures and battlefield souvenirs, weapons and army vehicles, medals and uniforms.

Situated on the island town of Enniskillen and within a short walk to the town centre, Enniskillen Castle offers visitors a great opportunity to find out more about the regions’s ancient past and with a new café facility now available, you can take time to enjoy some refreshments before you explore the rest of the county.
