Castle Coole is one of the greatest neo-classical country houses in Ireland. Built to impress in the 1790s by the first Earl of Belmore, no expense was spared on the palace in the park which was designed to outdo the home of his brother in law, the Earl of Enniskillen, at nearby Florence Court. Various craftsmen were employed from across Ireland and Britain to decorate the interior of the house, from the fine plasterwork to the marble fireplaces and the scagliola columns. Within the lavish interiors is a State Bedroom created for an expected royal visit of King George IV which never came.
At just over one mile, the Lake Walk at Castle Coole is the perfect trail for a 'walk and talk' with family and friends. This flat route follows the historic track around Lough Coole so you won't be out of breath to enjoy the breath-taking views. With a wealth of wildlife resting in the reeds, little legs will also enjoy the sights on this enchanting walk on the edge of Enniskillen.
