Belleek





Travelling downstream from Enniskillen you will pass Devenish Island which contains one of Ireland’s few complete Round Towers. It is about 1,000 years old and the site is complete with monastic buildings dating to the 6th century. Two religious orders, the Augustinians and the Ceile Dei, an Irish religious order occupied this ancient seat of learning. As you enter the broad inland sea of Lower Lough Erne you can visit other monastic islands such as Inishmacsaint with its large unique cross and White Island with its carved representations of Christ which are about 1,000 years old. There are Plantation sites to visit at Tully Castle and Castle Caldwell. The unique statue of a two headed Celtic deity can be seen on Boa Island which is an iconic image of Ireland in the Iron Age 2,000 years ago. Lower Lough Erne spreads out to 8-10 miles wide under the 1,000 feet high Cliffs of Magho which the energetic may climb and then onward to the flourishing town of Belleek with its world famous Pottery founded in 1857. The Pottery has a world wide fame and the village is a busy energetic place with fine accommodation, dining and pub scene. Guides to anywhere in Fermanagh and further afield can be booked with erneheritagetours.com.
