Crom Estate.

The Crom Castle estate extends to 1350 acres it is set on a peninsula surrounded by the shimmering waters of Upper Lough Erne, it is one of the most important wildlife nature reserves owned by the National Trust.

The castle built between 1834 - 40 for the Earls of Erne, the family still live there, the castle and its associated buildings are private. One of these buildings was constructed in 1610 to house peat which was brought to the estate by barge to fuel the fires in the mansion.

There is also a restored six sided summer house complete with a fireplace, also a castellated boat house on the shore of the Lough.

The ruins of the former Crom Castle are to be seen, this plantation building was built in 1611 and was unsuccessfully besieged by the Jacobites under Lord Galmoy in March 1689 and again in July under general McCarthy. The house remained in the hands of the Crichton family until it was accidentally burned down in 1764.

Headhunters Barbers Shop & Railway Museum.

A trip to Headhunters Barber Shop & Railway Museum is like taking a remarkable journey into the past bringing the golden age of the railway vividly to life. Visitors start their journey of discovery at the reconstructed Railway Booking Office where the ticket collector invites you to step on board and enjoy the evocative nostalgia, social heritage and amazing artefacts associated with the railways which operated throughout Fermanagh and the Border Counties until their closure in 1957.

The association between the barbers shop and the railway theme was inspired through the family's interest in local railway history. Customers enjoy the professional hairstyling, friendly atmosphere and unique opportunity to be surrounded with a feast of railway memorabilia.

Our aim when developing the estate for our visitors was to simply convert and refurbish a number of listed buildings and existing cottages in a sensitive and caring manner.

Above all else we were keen to avoid any feeling of 'new build' and instead preserve the unique beauty and timeless atmosphere of this idyllic area which is nationally recognised as an Area of Special Scientific Interest.
