Meet in the Castle Café, Enniskillen Castle Museum, Wellington Road, Enniskillen. (copy of OMEGA on the table.) There are two Museums to explore as Inniskilling Museum is based within the Castle. The experience brings to life six hundred years of history, firstly as the Maguire family stronghold, then the Plantation years and on through Fermanagh’s role in World War II. Joint ticket for both museums is £5.00 (Seniors £3.50). Free car park and the bus centre is only a few minutes’ walk to the Castle. Booking is essential via the Local Contact or Executive Representative so that a guided tour and transport can be agreed.
