Islands for every day of the year
Explore a vast network of islands, inlets and coves. Lough Erne, named after the ancient Celtic tribe “Erainn” that once populated the area, continues to provide some of the most scenic vistas on the Shannon Erne Blueway. Dotted with a myriad of mysterious islands, Lough Erne is stunningly timeless and peaceful. While an island for every day of the year may be a subtle exaggeration, surveys show there are in fact 199 islands. Islands like Devinish with its iconic round tower. It is one of the finest in Ireland that you can actually climb to the top and admire the views.
Round towers were built to escape the Vikings who plundered monastic settlements for their golden treasures. Or why not embark from Crom estate and castle surrounded by the glistening waters of Lough Erne and paddle by Crichton Tower on Gad Island built in 1847 to serve as an observatory. Each and every island with their own distinct characteristics, the wooded inlets and coves all set within rolling countryside offers you a unique journey of discovery.
