Erne Water Taxi

Experience Fermanagh’s newest service Erne Water Taxi. Sit back, relax and see Lough Erne your way with our chauffeur driven boats. With seating for up to 8 people, our boats are specifically designed for comfort, with individual coach seating and unrestricted views of the Lough. The closed cabin design protects you from the elements allows you to get closer to the water in complete safety. The boats can travel slowly, but also at speed allowing us to get to you faster and allowing you to see more of Lough Erne.

We are a husband and wife team, Barry & Helen Flanagan. Having worked in tourism and the outdoors in Fermanagh we wanted to give visitors the chance to see, learn, taste and touch more of Lough Erne and become immersed in the spectacular lakeland landscape. Our water taxi service will provide you with a pick up and drop-off service from any accessible jetty on the Lough and we also offer a range of tours of Lough Erne including a new Food Trail.
