Enniskillen Castle, situated beside the River Erne in County Fermanagh, was built almost 600 years ago by Gaelic Maguires. Guarding one of the few passes into Ulster, it was strategically important throughout its history. In the 17th century it became an English garrison fort and later served as part of a military barracks.Using our custom trip planner, Enniskillen attractions like Enniskillen Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Great to see the history and such at this historic site. I'd you're into military history, this is the place for you. If you just want to see a castle, you'll be probably disappointed, as this place has been upgraded throughout the years. There is a decent amount of the "old" castle left to be seen, however. Good place to visit if you're in the area, but questionable if going out of your way is worth it. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Stopped for continental market that was held there. Even though it was very busy, was able to get a free parking spot in the car park beside. Place is well kept and clean and this was on a very busy day
Very impressive. Vast array of items and artifacts on display. Takes a good 2 hours to get round it fully.
Nice and cheap place to pass a bit of time. It is £5 for an adult and £3.50 for concessions and students. Tanks, Guns and a WW2 motorcycle on display which I didn't expect! All very interesting history, definitely worth the trip.
Informative displays show how life played out, from ancient times to recent WWl history. Worth a stop— a super cute town, too. The staff are the stars, a few of whom went above and beyond to return my jacket to a town further away, me having realized, after a 3 hour drive, that I left me coat behind. With some clever thinking, Martina, Joanne and Katherine (?) returned the coat on the next days bus!! Now there’s a service the bus company might want to start!
