This famous castle was once
the stronghold of Gaelic chieftains
the Maguires who are said to have policed the Lough with a private
navy of 1,500 boats. During the Plantation the Castle was taken
over and used as an Army Barracks. The castle has exhibitions on
the Maguires and the natural and social history of Fermanagh. Special
exhibitions are held throughout the year focusing on art and history.
Today the castle houses the
Regimental museum of the Inniskilling regiments who fought at Waterloo.
The museum also has an audio visual program on the region's natural
history, archaeology and folklore.
