Castlehamilton is recognised as one of the most beautiful locations in Ireland and offers families, walkers, cyclists, anglers and those with a love of nature a scenic and peaceful environment in which to indulge their love of the great outdoors.
This is a tranquil setting close to water’s edge and set in a landscape of lakes and islands. There are two private lakes for the fishing enthusiast and the Castle River runs between the estate and the 240-acre Killykeen National Forest Park .
Marked trails lead into the forests where visitors can view the park’s fauna and flora, disturbed only by the sound of birdsong and the rippling waters of Lough Erne. Castlehamiton is a special place in all seasons of the year.
In the springtime, on the western side of the estate is a fantastic area known as the daffodil bank, which is beside a ring fort that dates back to approximately 1000AD. Some of Ireland ‘s oldest trees are located on the Castlehamilton estate
