Crom Castle is a magnificent historic Irish castle that has been the seat of the Earls of Erne for over three and a half centuries. Surrounded by wonderful parkland and small wooded islands on shores of Upper Lough Erne, it is set in, what is possibly, the most magical situation of any castle. Steeped in Irish folklore and a long and fascinating history, Crom Castle is a truly welcoming place to enjoy a family reunion, house party or special occasion. The peace and tranquility is restorative with beautiful walks around the lough and the estate. The ruins of Crom Old Castle are to be found along the shore of the lough, where Jacobite battles were fought long ago. To the south of the ruins one can see traces of a formal 17th century garden.
The castle itself has grand but comfortable interiors. There is a wonderful state drawing room and state dining room along with a stunning vaulted kitchen and secondary dining room. There is also a conservatory which is ideal for larger scale entertaining and can seat up to 60 or 65 people comfortably in an L shape.
Sleeps 24 guests in 12 double and twin bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms.
2 hours from Dublin and Belfast. 18 miles from Enniskillen.
Crom Castle has a hard tennis court, rowing and sailing boats on Lough Erne, excellent woodcock and snipe shooting on the estate and several golf courses within easy reach including the Faldo Lough Erne Resort at Enniskillen. There are lots of outdoor activities that can be done on the estate or locally as well as visits to Castle Coole and Florence Court. You can also visit the Marble Arch Caves, which in 2004 along with Cuilcagh Mountain Park were recognized as a UNESCO Global Geopark. Award winning, Belleek Pottery Visitors Centre is also nearby and provides a fascinating insight into traditional methods of pottery passed down from generation to generation.
