Located on the edge of Enniskillen, Castle Coole is one of the treasures of the National Trust. Designed by James Wyatt and completed in 1798 for the first Earl of Belmore, Castle Coole’s interior was created by some of the leading craftsmen of the 18th Century. Marble chimney-pieces were carved by Westmacott, plasterwork created by Joseph Rose and scagioli columns the work of Bartoli. Magnificent State Rooms with their sumptuous Regency furnishings, include The State Bedroom prepared for a visit by George IV in 1821.

The Surrounding landscape park is a fine setting for the mansion, with Lough Coole and extensive woods. Visitors can also enjoy walks through The Grand Yard, Servant’s Quarters, Ice house, Servant’s Tunnel and view the original Belmore Coach.
