Due to the current Corona virus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season opening times and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event's website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Castle Archdale Countryside Centre & War Museum 2020

Explains the role played of Castle Archdale during the war and this display includes such items as old parts of aeroplanes, fuel tanks and old documents relating to the war. Lough Erne played an important role as the most westerly flying-boat station, from which aircraft protected the allied convoys from the U-Boat threat in the North Atlantic. There is also a collection of farm machinery and equipment telling the story of agriculture through the ages.
