About

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.

Enniskillen Castle Museums has undergone a major redevelopment, and opened in August 2016. Visitors can still enjoy The Inniskillings Museum within the castle grounds. Fermanagh County Museum's Medieval Maguires display remains open for visitors on the ground floor of the castle keep.

Major new galleries interpreting the county's rich history as the Kingdom of Lough Erne, with its crannogs, castles and early Christian stone sculptures. Imaginative displays celebrate local craftmanship from Belleek Pottery, to the Full-Circle Art Gallery and the rural traditions of the Fermanagh hearth. There is a changing programme of exhibitions and events throughout the year for everyone to enjoy.
