What's Open in Fermanagh Lakelands

The Fermanagh Lakelands is #readyforyou! 

A haven of natural spaces, rich heritage, excellent food and an abundance of memorable experiences, the Fermanagh Lakelands has sat gentle and still over the past few months. As we now begin our road map to recovery, we are springing back to life with the return of attractions, activities, shops and food businesses for you to enjoy as we welcome you back to Fermanagh!

Experience the idyllic waters of Lough Erne as you canoe between our iconic islands, enjoy a mouth watering treat with a difference as you ‘take out’ your favourite dish from our local restaurants, marvel in the breath taking panoramic views from the Cliffs of Magho, high above the county or discover our still water loughs, the perfect retreat for a quiet angling escape. Find all the local Fermanagh businesses who are open and #readyforyou below…
