:: Accommodation Fermanagh, Ireland
If you want to kick back with your fishing rod and flask of tea then Fermanagh could well be the place for you. The county is blessed with a network of fine fishing rivers and lakes with plentiful natural supplies of trout and salmon. Unlike other parts of the country tourist figures are still relatively low in this beautiful part of Ireland so the entire river could be yours.
A border county Fermanagh is in many ways the gateway to Ulster from the South and at one time the island town of Enniskillen was located on the main highway between Ulster and Connaught.
Indeed perhaps the countys most visited man made attraction Enniskillen Castle nestles in the county town itself. Once the stronghold of Gaelic chieftains the Maguires and later a Plantation castle and Army barracks the castle today hosts special exhibitions detailing the historical developments of the town and the county.
Pottery lovers will be inspired by a visit to the Belleek Pottery centre described by many as a step back in time. The methods of production and techniques used by the original craftsmen are still in operation today. Also you can pop into Belleek Crystal which is quickly making a strong world wide reputation for itself.
The county is dotted with other castles as well as the remnants of stone age constructions. History is everywhere in Fermanagh and it carries on the wind in a county where the slow pace of life takes priority over everything else.
