White Island is a short distance from the town of Enniskillen in Co. Fermanagh and is situated at Castle Archdale Bay off the east shore of Lower Lough Erne. The island’s main feature is the ruined 12th-century church with its fine Romanesque doorway. The island is also known for its archaic carved stone figures which sit in a line and are set into the wall. These figures were used as building stones when the church was being constructed which means that they pre-date the church. There are 8 figures in total including a frowning face or 'mask', and also an uncarved figure. For the historians out there this island is a must see and is only a short ferry ride away from Castle Archdale Country Park.
If you enjoy White Island then why not also visit another island in the area, Devenish Island.
