Boat Trips on Lough Erne

Lough Erne is unquestionably the jewel in Fermanagh's crown. Its three hundred miles of freshwater dotted with 160 green wooded islands make it one of Europe's best kept secrets. This vast expanse of water stretching from Belleek to Belturbet is one of the most uncongested lakes in Europe, which makes it a perfect location for day tripping. All of the boat trips cater to individuals and groups.

White Island Ferry

Enniskillen

White Island is an Island located on Lower Lough Erne. It is situated in Castle Archdale Bay off the east shore of Lower Lough Erne. The ruins of a 12th-century church with Romanesque doorway are found near the shore, built on the site of an earlier monastic settlement. The island is also known for its archaic carved 8 stone figures which sit in a line and are set into the wall dating back to the 6th century. These figures were used as building stones when the church was being constructed which means that they pre-date the church.

The Ferry from Castle Archdale is not operational currently however White Island is accessible by private boat or via Erne Water Taxi
