Lough Erne Golf Resort, County Fermanagh
The best of the west.
Lough Erne Resort & Spa
This might just be the ultimate ‘stay and play’ destination for golfers. The Lough Erne Resort & Spa is a luxurious hideaway in the Fermanagh Lakelands. You’ll find stunning lakeside bars, the 3 AA Rosette Catalina Restaurant, a multi-awardwinning Thai spa, and two beautiful golf courses.
Faldo & Castle Hume Courses
The Faldo Course at Lough Erne Resort & Spa is one of the finest on the island of Ireland. Designed by six-time Major winner Nick Faldo, the 7167-yard par-72 takes full advantage of its 600-acre peninsula setting. Water is an ever-present hazard and the green of the 10th hole is even surrounded on three sides by the lake. The Castle Hume course is another par-72 championship track that has hosted an unprecedented 10 Ulster PGA Championships.
Erne Water Taxi
To really travel in style in these parts, you need a chauffeur-driven water taxi. It’s the best way to tour the serene Fermanagh Lakelands and island-hop at will. You can even explore Ireland’s only island town, Enniskillen, from the water.
Every visitor should see this. The Cuilcagh Boardwalk gives you jaw-dropping views to rival any in Ireland. The 1.6km boardwalk across the bogland of Cuilcagh Mountain is an exhilarating experience, whether you’re out for a stroll or a veteran hillwalker.
Omagh Golf Club
This course is famous for tough par-fours and speedy greens, so you’ll have to be on your game in Omagh. The Drumragh River is an ever-present hazard through the front 9, while the back nine takes you towards the forest and some spectacular views of West Tyrone.
Marble Arch Caves
Fermanagh is even beautiful when viewed from below. The Marble Arch Caves are a fascinating natural labyrinth of caves, rivers, winding passages, and tunnels deep beneath the earth’s surface. It’s a one-off experience that’s not to be missed, and it might be the only chance you ever get to take a subterranean boat ride!
Got more time? Visit the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh for some immersive time-travel, and Blakes of the Hollow in Enniskillen for live traditional music in a beautifully preserved old pub... also home to one of the Doors of Thrones.
