Florence Court is a truly welcoming home, around 8 miles from Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh. The house, formerly the home of the Cole family, Earls of Enniskillen, is surrounded by a large area of parkland, garden and woodland, with breathtaking views to Benaughlin and the Cuilcagh Mountains. Discover many serene and beautiful corners by exploring the Pleasure Grounds and the Walled Garden in this magnificent demesne.
With it’s classical style and exquisite rococo plasterwork, Florence Court is one of Ulster's most important 18th-century houses. With it’s warm and gentle atmosphere and fine Irish furniture collection it is set against a stunning backdrop of the Cuilcagh mountains. You can enjoy glorious walks around the grounds which include a pretty walled garden and holiday cottage. Other interesting features include a sawmill, ice house and summer house.
In the gardens you will find the famous Florence Court Yew - reputedly the 'parent' of all Irish yew trees. 'Living History Tours' provide an entertaining insight into 1920s Florence Court and there is also a children’s playground and picnic area.
