Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Crom Estate is on my doorstep, and I visit regularly as it's nestled in a beautiful setting. It's so peaceful and quiet with gorgeous scenery. I have been lucky enough to get into Crom Castle a few times which is like something from a period drama!

Lovely walks along Upper Lough Erne, plenty to see and do. Not impressed with the cafe, toasties were a bit soggy underneath and coffee wasn't great. Cash only as they don't have a decent internet connection.

This is a super campsite.... one of the quiter ones we've been to. Very picturesque and tranquil. Facilities were extremely clean. Plenty for the kids to explore around the estate. Lots of walks and a jetty where you can hire row boats / launch your own. We brought our bikes but you can also hire some from the visitor centre. Staff were helpful and friendly. Special mention for the ladies in the coffee shop, who make all the cakes, pies and traybakes on site. They were amazing - massive portions and great value. We'll be back!

Ideal for a fantastic walk and which was perfect when you travel with dogs. The dogs really enjoyed their walk and it was a very interesting place to explore.
Lovely views about the Lough and interesting sites

We visited this National Trust site in July when there were record high temperatures. Luckily, there were plenty of shady sites for us to keep relatively cool. We are National Trust members which affords us free admission.

We walked the path that goes around the estate. You can view the castle, but it is a private residence, so one cannot get too close. There is a lovely lough on the grounds with beautiful vistas. There are benches on the path for one to sit and relax and just enjoy the surroundings.

After returning to the visitor center, we treated ourselves with a visit to the tea room. There was an amazing selection of cakes to pick from.
Bathrooms in the building are easily accessible and very clean.

On a four day visit we (mum, dad and three young children) loved the facilities that were there. Great location on the banks of Upper Lough Erne that the children loved. We are firm supporters of the National Trust but will wait to see if there is an improvement in facilities available. The area is well and truly isolated and it could do with a small shop or even if the cafe (very nice) sold bread & milk etc. I was really surprised that the trust has not yet installed a charger for an electric car. They seem to be keen on conservation and the environment but with no EV charger and what with it's isolated location, this means that a visit proves problematic and longer journeys to replace milk etc. There are generally poor EV charger numbers in the general area....another issue. Will keep an eye on whether they improve there green credentials.

We booked a dog friendly pod with family of mum dad and 4 kids and it was much more roomy for our mattresses than I had expected. For us it was a very nice alternative to camping (which all of our friends on the get together did) as there is far less hassle. It was also warm at night, compared to a tent in September. You still have to walk to the toilets at night etc! Everything is very close though. Lovely the pods are literally across a wall then at the lake, makes it fell almost lakeside! Yet its nice to be set back at little as at weekend there will be gathering on the boats on the quay (albeit very cilivilised!). We also loved the jetty jumping into the water, cycle rides, the brilliant bug hunting rucksacks (small deposit) and the fantastic stuffed animals and history in the visitor centre. There isn't much grass space for games right on the doorstep, but walk towards the ruins 5 mins reveals meadows where we played rounders etc. The staff were fantastic and offered a some fabulous help after the weekend, going above and beyond!

Because we camped overnight this time we saw more wildlife including the deer and a hare in the quiet early morning. Friendly staff, beautiful campsite with fire pit and good facilities. Pods and other accommodation is also available in some of the beautiful buildings. Bringing bicycles would be recommended to get around though great access to the water for water-sports too. This is a beautiful and peaceful place with easy walking. Can’t understand a negative reviewer I’d read below who wanted ‘more to do’. There’s a exhibition area, second hand book shop, cafe, (weak) Wi-Fi for the kids, some lawn games and a small play park.

We accessed Crom estate by the marina which is conveniently located near the entrance, we spent a wonderful afternoon in the visitors centre and the gardens on the estate. We spotted a very impressive old Yew tree here. We all enjoyed a long awaited indoor snack in the cafe following the pandemic lockdown
