Lough Erne: A truly unspoiled paradise for boating enthusiasts.
Once a trade route for the Vikings, untouched by modern commercial navigation, the Erne System remains a truly unspoilt paradise for boating enthusiasts, anglers and watersports fanatics. With so many moorings on islands along the waterway, complete isolation is possible on the Erne System.
The water has a powerful pull in Fermanagh – streaked with pale winter sunshine or gilded with flashes of golden light, it draws you to it, to explore its hidden islands and to see the land from a different perspective. Getting out on the water here is a must, whether you’re cruising through the warm, drowsy days of summer, or rocking gently from deserted island to deserted island in a kayak. And what’s more – it’s great fun. Lough Erne serves up endless ways to explore its dreamy waters, whether you want to embark on a food cruise around the lake’s best gourmet stop-offs or you want to unearth the history of Devenish Island.
When it comes to cruising holidays, Upper and Lower Lough Erne offer one of the most spectacular locations of anywhere in the island of Ireland. Incredible views, glassy waters and great places to stop along the way from craggy waterside castles to stunning monastic islands make a cruising holiday here utterly unforgettable. Perfect for everyone from novices to experts, boats of varying sizes are available to hire from a range of providers in the area including Carrick Craft, Manor House Marine, Carrybridge Boat Company and Aghniver Boat Company.
