Devenish Island Cruise in County Fermanagh

Relax and take in the scenery as your Boat Master provides a live and interesting commentary onboard the MV Kestrel as you travel through Fermanagh’s waterways.

Why should I go to Devenish Island Cruise in County Fermanagh?

Your tour will take you over magnificent waterways, and past historic sights including Enniskillen Castle, Portora Royal School and Boat Club, Old Portora Castle, Waterways Ireland Headquarters and Cole's Monument!

Look for the quick and colourful Kingfisher as it flies low to the water near the nesting place and try if you can locate it.

Admire the crew’s ability as they carefully take you past the Portora lock gates and onto the Devenish Island Monastic Site on Lower Lough Erne.

When you get to Devenish Island, you may disembark for 45 minutes to learn about its history, which dates back to the 6th century and includes the best surviving Round Tower in Ireland, an Augustinian Abbey, the church remains, old graveyards, and a high cross. There is also a small museum and restrooms.
