Castle Coole is a townland and a late-18th-century neo-classical mansion situated in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. Set in a 1200acre wooded estate, it is one of three properties owned and managed by the National Trust in County Fermanagh, the others being Florence Court and the Crom Estate.The townland, which is in size, is situated in the civil parish of Derryvullan, in the historic barony of Tirkennedy, as well as Fermanagh and Omagh district.HistoryThe Castle Coole estate was purchased in 1656 by the Belfast merchant John Corry, grandfather of the first Earl. The estate is named for Lough Coole (from Irish Gaelic cúil, 'seclusion'), a lake surrounded by the Killynure hills. A ráth here and a crannog in Lough Coole itself are reminders that the area has been settled since prehistoric times. Other lakes on the estate include Lough Yoan and Brendrum Lough.

  • Castle Cole is really worth. There's a great guide where you can learn a lot. Around the castle there is a beautiful park, which is suitable especially for the picnic.

  • Fantastic natural walks. Great canoeing. Historical castle. Nice coffee shop
  • Too expensive to get in unless you joint the National Trust. The house is large and the tour takes you into the ground floor where the servents worked. The kitchens, wine cellar etc. The house has large grounds but no gardens, just grass. There's a lake with a walk around it and other walks through the trees that have lots of bluebells in the spring. There's a cafe and toilets and a play park for children. There's a place to tie your dog to with a water tap and bowl for your dog if your in the toilets or cafe and plenty of free poop scoop bags and bins.
  • Great place for a day out. Been to some good events here as well
  • This is one of my favorite places to go and be I love the cafe fresh food and cakes very helpful staff and nice shop and great house tour with a long wonderful walk and great for children for days out and great for dogs also
