ENNISKILLEN & FERMANAGH GUIDE
Enniskillen is the County Town of Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, located almost exactly in the Centre of the County on an extraordinary natural island which separates the Upper and Lower sections of Lough Erne. Enniskillen is the largest town in Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.
Enniskillen Town Centre is firmly built along the long, narrow Main St, which actually changes name six times along its length. This gives Enniskillen a real sense of bustle and life as well as imbuing the shops with their own unique character. High Street Stores sit comfortably beside small independent traders, creating a special atmosphere for the place.
There are architectural gems in the town and these will form the heart of Happy Days 2013. Enniskillen Castle, Castle Coole, Portora Royal School, Ardhowen Theatre, St Michael’s Church and St Macartin’s Cathedral among others.
One of the key images that a visitor to Enniskillen may take home with them is the proximity of Lough Erne to the town. Moorings just outside the town centre ease the pressure for parking spaces and add a continental feel. Enniskillen is a retail centre for the County, and beyond, and a lively hub for dining and drinking.
Fermanagh is world famous for the beauty of its landscape. The Fermanagh Lakelands has a wealth of extraordinary natural sites to explore.
For 5 days in August the Town of Enniskillen and the County of Fermanagh will celebrate the wonders and influence of Samuel Beckett with a major new international festival, Happy Days. The festival runs from Thursday 22rd-Monday 26th August 2012. Plus there are free exhibitions throughout July and August.
