We stayed for two days on a Groupon deal and really enjoyed our visit .
Tanya and Linda did everything to make us feel at home. After 6 months of business trips in anonymous chain hotels, Lough Erne was a breath of fresh Northern air!
A small hotel with a friendly, homely atmosphere, we will be back !
Things to do ?- 30 minutes drive to Belleek for the Pottery Tour - very good. Then lakeside drive to the Jolly Sandwich in Darling St ., Ennoskillen for coffee and cakes- delicious!

The building cost £650 and the police paid £30 per year for rent. A year after the barrack was built it was burnt down in an accidental fire. Some repairs were done immediately but further work was carried out in 1921. For example stabling for horses that was provided behind the hotel in what is now the Glendurragh Suite.
