Enniskillen - The Only Island Town
Enniskillen is the County Town of Fermanagh, located almost exactly in the Centre of the County on the natural island which separates the Upper and Lower sections of Lough Erne. Enniskillen is home to a population of approximately 11,500, by far the largest settlement in the County.
Enniskillen Town Centre is firmly built along the long, narrow Main St, which actually changes name six times along its length! This gives Enniskillen a real sense of bustle and life as well as imbuing the shops with their own unique character. High Street Stores sit comfortably beside small independent traders, creating a special atmosphere for the place.
One of the key images that a visitor to Enniskillen may take home with them is the proximity of the Lough to the town. Moorings just outside the town centre certainly ease the pressure for parking spaces and add a continental feel to the town. As one would expect, Enniskillen is a retail centre for the County, and beyond, and a lively hub of activities, events and things to do throughout the year..
