Lough Erne

In 1776 Richard Twiss compared the beauty of Lough Erne to Loch Lomond, the Italian Lakes and Lake Geneva. Today Lough Erne still stands up to such comparisons and remains a visitors’ paradise.

Lough Erne is a lough of two parts: the upper lough, with its tangle of inlets and drumlins, and the lower lough, with its corridor of islands and broad expanses of water, almost like inland seas. Between the two is Enniskillen, the heart of County Fermanagh, and a historic and much-loved town that boasts such attractions as the castle, the Inniskillings’ Regimental Museum and Cole’s Monument. In over 150 stunning photographs, Alain Le Garsmeur captures the beauty of the area in all its different moods, seasons and weathers, from frosty days at the Crom Estate (the location for the filming of the BBC series Blandings) to Spring days when bluebell carpet the shores.

The photographs tell the story of the lough, from its well-known landmarks such as Devenish, Boa Island and Florence Court to its stunning hidden inlets, moorings and jetties. This is an unmissable celebration of life on the water in one of the best-loved parts of Ireland – perfect both for those who want to discover the area and also for those who have already fallen under its spell.
