County Fermanagh in detail

Sleeping

There's a good range of accommodation in Enniskillen, from budget motels to modern midrange hotels. Along the edges of Lough Erne are some luxurious lakeside resorts, self-catering cottages and a few comfortable B&Bs.

Cruising Holidays on Lough Erne

If you fancy exploring Lough Erne as captain of your own motor cruiser, you can – and without any previous experience or qualifications. Several companies in Fermanagh hire out self-drive, liveaboard cabin cruisers by the week, offering a crash course (not literally, hopefully) in boat-handling and navigation at the start of your holiday. Weekly rates in high season (July and August) range from about £800 for a two-berth to £1250 for a four-berth and £1525 for a six-berth boat.
