Top 10 ten places to visit in Northern Ireland – County Fermanagh and Lough Erne

Take to the Water on Lough Erne

Lough Erne in County Fermanagh is famously beautiful and attracts thousands of visitors to this region of Northern Ireland. The Lough consists of two main parts, Lower Lough Erne in the northwest and Lower Lough Erne in the southeast. The surrounding hills are wooded with ash, oak and beech, producing a scene of fresh green in the spring and rich rusty colours in the autumn. It’s a breathtaking landscape, where land and water compliment each other in a resonant, stately harmony.
Perhaps the best way to see the landscape is from a boat – cruises operate from both upper and lower Loughs.
