Fermanagh is known as the Lakelands of Northern Ireland, due to the significant waterways which dominate the county. Lough Erne runs from the Atlantic in the West to Belturbet in County Cavan; which is then connected to the Shannon-Erne Waterway where one can navigate as far as Limerick. Lough Erne itself is made up of the Upper and Lower Lakes which connect in the picturesque island town of Enniskillen which sits on the River Erne.
