  • Excellent guided tour which takes around 90 minutes. The building almost bankrupted one Earl and the one after him was put into financial difficulties furnishing the place. The best of everything...

  • I have visited the grounds many times before walking my dogs, however this was my first time inside the house. Its stunning, I was not expecting to see so much of the interior. Our tour guide was Emma, she was a vibrant fun tour guide, very polite, knowledgeable & welcoming. We ended up having a tour alone with her as no body else showed up to that particular tour slot (although there were 25 in the previous tour). We really enjoyed the tour & learning about the history of castle coole. Owners requested no photos of the interior home are allowed.
  • Fantastic experience in Castle Coole. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and the interior of the house is worth a look. The grounds around the castle are well maintained and the walk is definitely worth it 👌
  • This was my first time at Castle Coole. It is such a beautiful spot. Even though it's situated in the heart of Enniskillen Town, you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere it's so serene and peaceful. The lake views, the mountain, the mansion, the grounds, it's all so beautiful. We took a guided tour in around the house. Unfortunately visitors aren't allowed to take any pictures inside but the tour was interesting, very informative and full of history and engaging facts. The interior is splendid. So many beautiful details to see and experience. If you're in the area I would recommend stopping by here. The coffee shop too was full of lovely treats and a great cup of tea. All the staff ee encountered were so welcoming and friendly.
  • The house, cafe and bookshop were shut today but we enjoyed the play area, lake walk and exterior of the house. Everything opens up properly on Friday (Good Friday).
  • Lovely house - interior is stunningly grand and worth a tour. Good second hand book shop and cafe on site. Walks in estate are pleasant. Staff were helpful and informative. Dropped one star due to poor system of booking on house tours - we were told to arrive 15mins before tour time and we would get on. We did but a couple told the same thing didn't. People who arrived later could book on sooner because tours couldn't be booked on arrival.
