  • Free parking at museum, free entry to the site. Café at entrance along with toilets. The area is very well maintained. Clean and tidy. Tables outside you can also sit at and soak up the atmosphere. Various areas to have a look at, there was only one building I believe does not have a lift to go upstairs and that is the main building in the centre as it is on of the oldest. However, you can enter the ground level which is the original part of the building. Everywhere else is wheelchair and parm accessible. Staff very friendly and helpful. I believe you can pay for a tour guide if you wish. There is a beautiful walk along the water way that runs just outside the museum. You can sit and watch some boats go by, groups doing water sports that are on the little island or kick a ball around on the grass area. A beautiful area to visit.
  • Absolutely wonderful place, free parking, more than reasonable entrance fee. So well thought out. Our boys (12,10,7 & 5) absolutely loved it! A special mention to the lady in the gift shop, who went above and beyond to interact with the boys, tell them all about the war artifacts and help them try them on. Sparked a real fire for historical knowledge in our boys. Thank you! 😊
  • You have to ask yourself at what point in history do people decide “we don’t need a castle anymore, let’s own a coffee shop” then we can charge people £4 for a small pot of tea ( that works out at around £36 a gallon, and you complain about petrol prices!) Ho! And we can slap in a scone that has cost us 30p for £3 ( I put that in just to cause a storm, actually they are only £2.95, well that’s better isn’t it?
  • Brilliant museum that covers so many aspects of Fermanagh's heritage - beautifully presented, with great, helpful staff. Love every visit!
  • Lovely historic property with cafe and visitor centre cost is very reasonable
