Annual free opening day at cultural sites throughout Northern Ireland. Visitors are welcome to visit Enniskillen Castle Museums free of charge over this weekend. Enniskillen Castle, situated beside the River Erne in County Fermanagh, was built almost 600 years ago by Gaelic Maguires. Guarding one of the few passes into Ulster, it was strategically important throughout its history. In the 17th century it became an English garrison fort and later served as part of a military barracks. This historic site houses two museums, Fermanagh County Museum and The Inniskillings Museum
Special Activity organised by the NIEA on Saturday 8 September only – 2pm – 5pm
Early 17th century Plantation era Men-at-Arms demonstrate the arms and defensive manoeuvres that this castle was built to accommodate.
