Florence Court enjoys a peaceful setting in West Fermanagh

All in a day:

Morning

Why not start your day with a traditional Irish breakfast at Florence Court, County Fermanagh? This 18th-century house oozes with charm and appeal and is set against the stunning Cuilcagh Mountains. As one of Ulster’s most important houses, Florence Court is a fine example of a classical Irish home with its beautiful interiors and exquisite decoration. Having explored the house, why not discover all the grounds have to offer too including the sawmill and ice house. Call 028 6634 8249 or email Florence Court.

Early afternoon

Next stop; take a trip to Crom, Newtonbutler. Located on the edge of Upper Lough Erne and stretching as far as the eye can see, this breathtaking 810-hectare (2,000-acre) demesne is an important area of conservation. Groups can enjoy a guided tour of the estate, visit the old castle ruins and catch sight of one of the many rare species that call Crom their home. Call 028 6773 8118 or email Crom.

Afternoon

End your day with a stop at Castle Coole, County Fermanagh, which is recognised as one of the finest neo-classical houses in Ireland. With its opulent Regency interior, State Bedroom prepared for George IV and working kitchen, a visit to this historic house will be one to remember.

Why not take an ‘upstairs downstairs’ tour around the house with one of their experienced guides and explore the extravagant mansion. Learn about the vast underground basement and wine cellar in contrast to the lavish rooms upstairs, once occupied by the Earls of Belmore. Call 028 6632 2690 or email Castle Coole for prices.

Relax and unwind over cake in the Tallow tea-room before heading home. Soak in the atmosphere and reflect upon your experience of our selected Northern Ireland destinations.
