- There is something for all the family at the warm and welcoming 18th-century former home of the Earls of Enniskillen. The house enjoys a peaceful setting in west Fermanagh, with a startlingly beautiful backdrop of mountains and forests. There are many glorious walks to enjoy, as well as fine vistas and play areas in the outstanding grounds. The famous Florence Court Yew is reputedly the 'parent' of all Irish yew trees. There is even a charming walled garden. Every aspect of life in this imposing classical Irish house, with its fine interiors, exquisite rococo plasterwork and Irish furniture collection, are brought to life on the fascinating guided tours. Outside there are numerous unusual places to explore, including a sawmill, ice house and the thatched Heather House.
