Course Directory / Northern Ireland / County Fermanagh
Mostly rural with farming as its chief means, County Fermanagh is primarily in the basin of the River Erne in Northern Ireland and is often referred to, along with neighboring County Cavan, as Ireland's Lake District. It's also the only county in Ireland that does not adjoin Lough Neagh. With a population of just 60,000, the island town Enniskillen is the county's largest at 14,000 people. There you will find Coole castle and Enniskillen castle, the latter of which is home to the museum of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards. Well known castles outside of Fermanagh include the Castle Balfour and Tully Castle. Fermanagh is also known for its historic trails, excellent for bicycling routes through the Lakeland scenery. The best known is the Kingfisher Trail, named after the bird synonymous with the area. You can also hire a boat and explore the Shannon-Erne Waterway to Marble Arch caves or the Sheelin Lace.
The golf is pretty much limited to Enniskillen. Choices include the parkland courses of Castle Hume Golf Club, Enniskillen Golf Club and the Lough Erne Resort's Faldo Championship Course, the latter of which is a 7,167-yard par 72 championship course.
