GARY & DANIELLE'S FAVOURITES

LOUGH ERNE EXPERIENCE

You couldn't go to Co Fermanagh without water being involved somewhere along the line so we were relieved that we were going to be ON Lough Erne and not IN it! Especially as it was raining!

We were going to be given a tour of the lough and its most notable landmarks by skipper Stephen Craig. No cruising gin palace for us, we were in a high speed rib.

We started from Castle Island in Enniskillen and went up the river Erne and onto Lough Erne proper. Stephen pointed out sites of historical interest and gave us some background. One of the landmarks we passed was Devenish Island with its impressive round tower. Gary was given a tantalising glimpse of the Lough Erne golf course but again he was thwarted in his ambition to get a round in.

Once the tour was over Stephen gave over the controls to us and we both got a chance to open up the throttle and go for some speed. All too soon it was over and as we walked up the jetty the sun came out to dry us off.

BACKGROUND

The tours are run by Life, One Great Adventure and the Lough Erne tours are based on Castle Island in the middle of Enniskillen.
