Take a Short Break in Fermanagh this Autumn

With stunning scenery, a fascinating history and heritage, unique shopping and first class accommodation, County Fermanagh is the ideal place to take a short break this Autumn.

Great Outdoors

Walking in FermanaghFor a taste of Fermanagh's stunning landscapes, head along to Cuilcagh Mountain, the highest point in the county, which can be accessed via a new boardwalk.  It is located within the beautiful Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark.  Other options include a more gentle stroll around Castle Caldwell Forest or Castle Archdale Forest Park.

If you fancy exploring one of Ireland's most important nature conservation areas, visit the beautiful Crom Estate on the shores of Upper Lough Erne in the south of the county.  Alternatively, lose yourself with a long, leisurely walk in the beautiful woodland of fellow National Trust property Castle Coole in Enniskillen.

Rich History and Heritage
