If you love a good stroll, walking Northern Ireland is the perfect place for you to explore. The beautiful and diverse landscape of Northern Ireland means there are walks for people of all levels and with such an assorted offering, there’s a perfect walk for everyone. In this post we’re focusing on walking in Fermanagh.
Fermanagh is renowned for its lakelands but it offers so much more than that. Cuilcagh Mountain is the highest summit in the County and is part of the UNESCO endorsed Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark due to its unique geology and spectacular landscape.
Where is Fermanagh?
County Fermanagh borders four counties in the South of Ireland: Donegal, Leitrim, Cavan and Monaghan, as well as County Tyrone in the North. Interestingly it is the only county in Northern Ireland which doesn’t border Lough Neagh.

Marble Arch Caves
The Marble Arch Caves became the World’s first Global Geopark in December 2008 and has been recognised by UNESCO because of its internationally important geological heritage. Here you can explore an amazing collection of rivers, waterfalls, winding passages and lofty chambers.
At Lough Erne you can visit 6th century carved figures on White Island, a 12th Century settlement on Devenish Island and Enniskillen Castle. It’s a place bursting with human and natural heritage. Native wildlife can be spotted including peacocks, heron, swans and Irish hares!
