Join a tour of Florence Court - a family home

A visitor looks up at the elaborately decorated ceilings in Florence Court

Florence Court is something of a mystery. Although it is one of the most important Georgian houses in Ireland, no building records survive, little is known of its architectural development, and its history is a patchwork of quite often contradictory documentary evidence.

What we do know is that Florence Court is the creation of three successive generations of the Cole family, who were powerful Fermanagh landowners with roots in the plantations of the 17th century. The foundations were laid by Sir John Cole, who romantically named the house after his wife, Florence Bourchier Wray.
Florence Court has so many stories to tell about generation after generation of the Earls of Enniskillen and their families, and holds a fascinating collection of Irish furniture, and some of the best Rococo plasterwork in Ireland. Join one of our informative and interesting guides on a tour of this beautiful Georgian mansion for a fascinating insight into the house and its stories.
