Enniskillen Castle.
 

(Cethle's island.)

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.
