Enniskillen in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland looks like it has been placed neatly at the exact center of the upper and lower sections of Lough Erne. The lake covers a huge part of the county, so naturally a lot of the tourism here is related to waterside attractions and outdoor activities. But Enniskillen and its neighboring towns have a lot more history and natural beauty to offer, from Enniskillen Castle to the Marble Arch Caves and Cuilcagh Scenic Drive. Needless to say, you cannot move around these parts unless you have your own vehicle or get a car for hire in Enniskillen.
