About Enniskillen Castle

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 Regimental Museum of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, along with displays about monuments in Fermanagh in the curved barrack range.
