When people here say you’re never more than a couple of hours away from anywhere in Northern Ireland, it’s true. But even better – you’re never more than a few minutes from something special!
In a single day you can take in mountains, forests, beaches, castles and quaint villages. Northern Ireland may be small but it packs in plenty; not just things to see, but plenty to do. The place is hopping with hundreds of city and country festivals dedicated to everything and anything. And over 90 golf courses, which means you’re always within a few minutes’ drive of fantastic golf. Which includes some of the world’s most renowned and historic courses, by the way.
Northern Ireland rewards every interest – heritage, gardens, wildlife, culture, live music, good food, crafts, antiques, angling - and getting active. Our coasts and mountains are just made for surfing and sailing, climbing and coasteering, cycling and cruising. From a gentle walk to the most extreme sports...or just exploring and seeing what’s around the next corner, the ever-changing landscapes are certain to enchant.
From Enniskillen, it’s easy to get to all the highlights.
Ireland’s sole World Heritage Site, the Giant’s Causeway is 100 miles away – just one of the many gems strung like a necklace along Northern Ireland’s Atlantic coast.
The famous fortified city of Derry is just an hour to the north – the only city in the British Isles entirely ringed by 17th century walls, which visitors can walk along. Derry is also famous for its arts and music scene.
Belfast, under two hours to the east, has blossomed into a vibrant city with plenty happening year round – nightlife, live music, events, new museums including the MAC and stunning new Titanic building, theatres, and dining and shopping for every taste.
There is so much more – the Mourne Mountains sweeping down to the sea, a landscape which inspired the Narnia books. And the dramatic contrasts of the Glens of Antrim, looking towards Scotland just 12 miles away. Or the county of Armagh steeped in the legends, landscapes and legacies of past realms.
But Fermanagh alone has so much going on, you may have to make a return visit to see and do it all.
