It’s one of Loch Erne’s many islands and is well worth a meander around with a date.
Surrounded also by lots of lush green countryside, Castle Coole is the place to venture if you want to get out and about on your date and get a bit of fresh air in your lungs. Of course some castles are located conveniently t in the centre of town, and as is the case for Enniskillen castle it makes for a picturesque date location, perched in front of the town’s central island on the river.There are two museums inside the 16th century walls and lots to be learned about this town’s torrid history. If you’re thinking a bit more adventurously for your date then make use of the many watery pathways weaving their way through and around Enniskillen.You can hire canoes from Lakeland Canoe Centre near Castle Island in the centre of town or if you’d rather let someone else do the hard labour, hop on board the 56-seat waterbus the MV Kestrel.Tour guides take you and your date through this cave system by boat, with bright lights illuminating the many passageways tributaries and waterfalls that can be found underground.
The MV Kestrel stops at Devenish Island along the way and takes just over an hour and a half to return – plenty of time to get to know your date better.If romance is what you’re after why not book a Saturday evening cruise which includes a three-course dinner at the Killyhevlin Hotel. If you do happen to take the boat trip, or even make your own way there, Devenish Island is an interesting old Monastic Site on which the ruins of different time periods still stand.
