Travel Tips for Enniskillen
Being so close to the 'Border' (there are no border controls these days) many of the shops in the town will accept Euros in cash.
Do ask before you buy, as it would be a little embarrassing if you are trying to pay for a purchase and you don't have any 'real' money.
Exchange rates vary widly. If you have euros are spending them then always check the rate they are offereing. You could get a bargain as a shop may off a premium over the normal exchange rate as an inducement to Southern shoppers. Chain stores are more likley to offer a less keen rate
Handy if you are only in the 'North' for a couple of hours.
Ahh, Enniskillen, it will take your breath away...
"So much to see and to"
If you base yourself in the pretty town of Enniskillen, which is virtually an island between two lakes (and that's just the start of the lakes around here), you can see so much in a day around the County Fermanagh region. Whatever activity you enjoy, be it fishing, cycling, visiting stately homes and ancient castles, or getting out and about in fresh country air will do wonders for your soul.
Eniskillen in Irish is Inis Ceithlean (means Kathleen's Island) and is a medium sized town of about 15,000 people. It is surrounded by farmlands and lakes aplenty.
I couldn't find Enniskillen in the VT locations, so have put it under the county.
Some people only think of the bombing in 1989 when they hear the name Enniskillen, but it is a nice place to live in or visit. There are also interesting places to visit and places to see.
Enniskillen is an island town which originates back to prehistory when it was the main highway between Ulster and Connaught. Enniskillen Castle was the medieval seat of the Maguires, chieftains of Fermanagh. The name is still frequently found in the region.
The countryside around Enniskillen is attractive with lakes and the River Erne.
Enniskillen (Inis Ceithleann in Irish) is the county town (and largest town) of Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. It is located almost exactly in the centre of the county on the natural island which separates the Upper and Lower sections of Lough Erne. Today with roads and bridges it no longer seems to be an island, but a flourishing centre for shopping and culture.
