Enniskillen

Enniskillen ©
Enniskillen is a town and civil parish in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. Get out of town with these interesting Enniskillen side-trips: Lough Navar Forest Viewpoint (in Derrygonnelly), Omagh (Omagh Library, The Abingdon Collection, & more) and Castlederg (St. Caireall's Church, Killeter Forest, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Marble Arch Caves, tour the pleasant surroundings at Cladagh Glen Walk, contemplate the long history of National Trust - Florence Court, and get outside with Lough Erne.

To find ratings, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Enniskillen trip planning website .

Buffalo, USA to Enniskillen is an approximately 21-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Buffalo to Enniskillen due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Buffalo in October, you will find days in Enniskillen are slightly colder (56°F), and nights are about the same (49°F). Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) so you can go by car to Derry.

Derry ©
Ancient yet modern, Derry has a photogenic location on the River Foyle and features a series of historic defensive walls that are the most complete in Ireland.
Change things up with these side-trips from Derry: Limavady (Largantea Picnic Area, Roe Valley Country Park, & more), Portrush (Dunluce Castle, Royal Portrush Golf Club - Dunluce Links, & more) and Bushmills (Giant's Causeway, River Bush, & more). There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of City Walls, snap pictures at Peace bridge, don't miss a visit to Walled city Londonderry, and take an in-depth tour of Ulster American Folk Park.

Plan my Derry trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by car from Enniskillen to Derry takes 1.5 hours. In October, plan for daily highs up to 58°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Ballintoy.

A city with character, Belfast remains a great place for a leisurely exploration, as it is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, who usually opt to visit Dublin instead.
Explore Belfast's surroundings by going to Bangor Castle Walled Garden (in Bangor), St John the Evangelist (in Carnlough) and Bushmills (Robert Quigg Sculpture, Causeway Coastal Route, & more). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to City Hall, see the interesting displays at Ulster Aviation Society, take a memorable drive along Coast Rd, and take in nature's colorful creations at Belfast Botanical Gardens.
