Delve into Northern Ireland's past via boatCounty Fermanagh, Northern Ireland

It’s one of the most beautiful places in Northern Ireland, yet few explore Lough Erne, a vibrant waterway rich in folklore in the Fermanagh Lakelands. Once a route of pilgrimage and plunder, today Erne Water Taxi takes punters for leisurely tours across the Lough’s glassy waters.

On a spacious and comfortable eight-seater vessel, you’ll explore the ruins of castles and monasteries, including Devenish Island, one of Ireland’s most significant monastic sights for its preserved sixth-century Augustinian monastery and twelfth-century round tower, and the striking stone cross on Inishmacsaint. You’ll learn the stories about the lives of the monks and Viking raiders while enjoying local cheeses and craft beers - it’s a fascinating look into Northern Ireland’s past.

The three-hour Lower Erne Expedition with Erne Water Taxi starts at around US$175.
