Project St Patrick

St Patrick’s Day in Enniskillen would be a quiet affair if it wasn’t for this crowd! Project St Patrick is a voluntary run committee responsible for bringing colour and life to the town for the past seven years.

Last year, around 15,000 people attended the successful parade and fun day in the island town, resulting in a busy days trading for shops and businesses in the town.




‘FEARmanagh’ is an adventure race not for the faint hearted. Incorporating running, cycling and kayaking, brave participants can choose between two races – short which is 35km, or a gruelling 74km long race.

Starting with just 103 participants six years ago, the event continues to grow and last year 300 people flocked to Derrygonnelly for the race including adventure seekers from as far away as France and Sweden.



Florencecourt – National Trust

FROM BOAT rides to forest trails, historic buildings to heritage preservation, the National Trust Fermanagh encapsulates everything that makes the county such a special place to visit.

With its three estates, Castle Coole, Crom and Florence Court, attracting tourists to localities right across the county, National Trust Fermanagh will have welcomed in the region of 110,000 visitors by the end of the year.



Fairy Trail at Lusty Beg Island

SET in an enchanted woodland on a scenic island in the Erne, Fermanagh’s fairy folk are attracting visitors from far and wide.

The latest offering from Lusty Beg, the interactive Fairy Trail has proved to be a big hit with not just our own little folk, but with grown-ups too. With big plans for Halloween and Christmas, we can expected its popularity to just keep growing.
