County Fermanagh

County Fermanagh is often referred to as Northern Ireland's Lake District. Located in the south-west of Northern Ireland, the region is approx. 120 km from Belfast and 160 km from Dublin.

It is a popular holiday destination for cruising and other water based holidays. The 70 km of lakes known as Lough Erne[?] are now linked to the Shannon system in the Irish Republic via the Shannon-Erne Waterway[?] Canal, making the entire system the longest navigable inland waterway in Europe.

The main town of Fermanagh is Enniskillen. The island town hosts a range of attractions including Enniskillen castle which is home to the museum of The Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers.
