Visit Florence Court
The house, formerly the home of the Cole family, Earls of Enniskillen, is surrounded by a large area of parkland, garden and woodland, with breathtaking views to Benaughlin and the Cuilcagh Mountains. (If you would like to visit the inside of Florence Court House, there is an area where you can leave your dog and a dog bowl with water is provided.)

 

Enjoy the Florencecourt Forest Park Yew Tree Walk
This trail also passes the Lady's Well but takes its name from the world famous "Florence Court Yew". The return route passes through the gardens of Florence Court House.

 

Walk the Big Dog Walk: Big Dog Forest
Big Dog Forest Walk is part of the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark. Big Dog Forest is 1,000 hectares in size and is cloaked largely with conifers. This beautiful short walk allows you to explore some of Fermanagh’s best upland landscapes, and the forest is inhabited by wildlife as varied as red deer, herons and dragonflies.
Possibly the most intriguing features along the walk are the two hills Big Dog and Little Dog. Their names originate from Irish Folklore as they are named after Bran and Skeola (Sceolan), two of the legendary Finn Mac Cool’s favourite wolfhounds.
