Cycling in Fermanagh
The Kingfisher Trail
Fermanagh is renowned for its lakelands and laid back pace of life. The iconic 230 mile Kingfisher Trail takes you along quiet country roads through some wild and beautiful country, over bridges, past old cottages and to places so remote and undisturbed that you might forget what a car sounds like. And along the way you could well spot a kingfisher, a bird long associated with this tranquil rural setting and lakeside scenery.
