Lovely, well-equipped and very peaceful. Elaine had everything ready, including a peat fire and Ian was very helpful and a great conversationalist. We were very comfortable.

About the neighbourhood
Central for Enniskillen, Lisnaskea or Cavan. Cuilcagh Mountain walk is about 20 minutes away, and is very popular with visitors to Fermanagh. There is 3 National Trust properties in Fermanagh for great walks around the estates and after a walk enjoy the many local coffee shops. Great shopping in Enniskillen a visit to the Buttermarket is a must for local crafts. Day boats can be hired at a number of locations if you are eager to explore Ulster's Lake District from the water. Swimming/leisure facilities available at Share Centre , Day Spas, Golf all nearby. Fishing nearby. An area of outstanding natural beauty. In May 2016 Fermanagh named as the friendliest place in UK

You do need a car as we are in the countryside. Local taxi companies are available if you want to go to Belturbet for night life. The local country roads are ideal for cycling or walking. You can take a bus from Derrylin or Belturbet to Dublin, a bus goes every hour.
