A visitor’s paradise and home to some of Ireland’s natural wonders.

Fermanagh is a county of open horizons and opportunity for all those who love the outdoor life. The landscape is an intricate patchwork quilt of woodland, forest, parkland and wetland. Here the glorious views and stunning panoramas of the natural environment are guaranteed to entice you into the fresh, cleansing country air.

Take the scenic drive to Lough Navar, and you will reach a dramatic cliff-top viewing point with a sweeping view across Lough Erne to the distant Donegal Mountains. Or plunge into the magical underworld of the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark - at this award-winning attraction, the fascinating guided tour includes an underground boat journey through this seductive realm of stalagmites and stalactites.

Enniskillen - Purple Flag Winner

Enniskillen is one of only five towns in Northern Ireland to be awarded the prestigious Purple Flag award.

Purple Flag is the national accreditation scheme for town centres at night. It is the “gold standard” for night time destinations. Like Blue Flag for beaches, places that meet the standards can fly the flag. Purple Flag centres are clean, safe and convivial, with something for everyone.

The award of flags is based on an independent assessment undertaken by trained assessors using a rigorous and comprehensive set of standards for the night time economy.

Purple Flag is run by the Association of Town Centre Management (ATCM) in partnership with industry, licensees, retailers, central and local government, the police and consumers.

The Enniskillen Purple Flag partnership is led by Fermanagh & Omagh District Council and includes representatives from Police, Licensed Trade, Fermanagh Lakeland Tourism and Department for Social Development.
