Enniskillen is the County Town of Fermanagh, resting on the natural island which separates the Upper and Lower sections of Lough Erne. The town is home to a population of approximately 11,500, by far the largest settlement in the County.
The town centre is firmly built along the long, narrow Main St, which actually changes name six times along its length! This gives the town a real sense of bustle and life as well as imbuing the shops with their own unique character. There is no new, anonymous, development to be found on the Main Street and the established High Street Stores sit comfortably beside small independent traders, creating a special atmosphere for the place.

One of the key images that a visitor to Enniskillen may take home with them is the proximity of the Lough’s to the town. Moorings just outside the town centre certainly ease the pressure for parking spaces and add a continental feel to the town.
These moorings are also close to Enniskillen’s Erneside shopping centre. Further down the Lough and close to the Killyhevlin Hotel is the Ardhowen Theatre, Fermanagh’s own cultural entertainment centre, which boasts a full and varied programme of entertainment.
