Overview

Fermanagh County Museum at Enniskillen Castle has reopened after undergoing a £3.5 million redevelopment. Enniskillen Castle, situated beside the River Erne in County Fermanagh, was built almost 600 years ago by Gaelic Maguires. Guarding one of the few passes into Ulster, it was strategically important throughout its history. In the 17th century it became an English garrison fort and later served as part of a military barracks. This historic site houses two museums, Fermanagh County Museum and The Inniskillings Museum and Fermanagh Visitor Information Centre. Opening Hours Monday to Friday (all year round): 9.30am* - 5.00pm Saturdays (all year round): 11.00am - 5.00pm Sundays (Jun to Sept): 11.00am - 5.00pm Bank Holidays - 9:30am* - 5:00pm Closure period - Enniskillen Castle will be closed over the Christmas & New Year holiday period. *9.30am opening for new visitor centre and 10:00am for other buildings Admission

Thank you for highlighting Enniskillen Castle. Maybe you will get a chance to enjoy the two museums - Fermanagh County Museum and The Inniskillings Museum as well as the historic castle site - on another visit through the beautiful Fermanagh Lakelands.

The museum has a variety of different spaces devoted to very different things. Serious stuff on the enniskillen area, history, archeology, but also an art gallery, plus the regimental museum of the Inniskillen regiment, which was very impressive. Certainly worth a few hours of anybody’s...More

Not worth visiting, in my opinion a waste of money. There was very little historical information about the castle. Unless you are very interested in the regiment don't bother. Even if you were interested, you'd struggle.

Entrance to the castle and cafe and visitor centre is free although there is a small charge for the two museums. An interesting exhibit about local history.
