Enniskillen Castle, situated beside the River Erne in County Fermanagh, was built almost 600 years ago by Gaelic Maguires. Guarding one of the few passes into Ulster, it was strategically important throughout its history. In the 17th century it became an English garrison fort and later served as part of a military barracks. This historic site houses two museums, Fermanagh County Museum and The Inniskillings Museum and Fermanagh Visitor Information Centre. Opening Hours Monday to Friday (all year round): 9.30am* - 5.00pm Saturdays (all year round): 11.00am - 5.00pm Sundays (Jun to Sept): 11.00am - 5.00pm Bank Holidays - 9:30am* - 5:00pm Closure period - Enniskillen Castle will be closed over the Christmas & New Year holiday period. *9.30am opening for new visitor centre and 10:00am for other buildings Admission

“Well Presented Military Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Enniskillen Castle is a great combination of an 'old castle' within which you have a modern military museum. Some excellent artifacts (right up to present day) all of which you can get round in an hour or so. It does major on the local regiments but even so this is appropriate and doesn't detract from the overall appeal to anyone with an interest in history or the military. Family tickat at£11 is good value.

“Great if you are interested in Military history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Heavy on the local military history. This is good for the locals but a bit boring for the tourists. The grounds and surrounding area is beautiful, right on Lough Erne,

“A museum not too in your face”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

The displays were well done and not too complicated.
Not a big museum but fills a couple of hours with a bit of education about the town.
Loved the military vehicle display outside.
Pity nowhere for refreshments.
