About this listing
We are an NITB Registered B&B and welcome individuals or groups to enjoy great Irish Hospitality in a beautiful location. Fish, Sail, Windsurf,Water ski, canoe to one of the islands or just curl up and read a book in our wonderful conservatory.
People who stay with us are usually on holiday so our home is relaxed and unhurried. There are so many things to do, great walks, fishing, water sports, historical sites,and monastic islands. We are 4 miles from Pettigoe and have guests stay with us on their way to join the pilgrimage at Lough Derg Retreat. Or maybe you are attending a wedding on Lusty Beg Island, we are just 2 miles away and an ideal place to stay.
We have our own private slipway and jetty for guests to use if they bring their own boat or jet ski. At the shore there is a changing area, bar b que area and a small beach. We also have an area where a camp fire can be lit.
We offer water skiing and wake board lessons to beginners and improvers. Canoes are available as are boat and jet ski trips. You can fish from the many fishing stands around the lake, or go with a guy (a gillie) that knows where to catch the best fish.
Interaction with Guests
We love meeting people and are happy to share information and suggestions on great places to visit or eat in the area.
Lough Erne is the longest inland waterway in Europe and runs from Belleek right down to Limerick. We are right on the border of NI and ROI. 22 miles from Donegal town 18 miles from Enniskillen. In just 1/2 hour you can be at the ocean, miles of golden sands, and one of the best surfing beaches around.
We are right out in the sticks. Our nearest village is three miles away and public transport is very limited. You really need a car and we have good safe off road parking facilities,
Other Things to Note
Our bright sunny conservatory is for the exclusive use of our guests at any time of the day. Breakfast is served here usually between 8 and 10am. Then between 5pm and 7pm we provide coffee/tea and home baked cake for guests to serve themselves. This is a great opportunity to meet other guests and exchange travelers tales.
We have a strict no smoking rule in the house.
Check in time from 4pm and check out time 12noon. This gives me time clean rooms and run to the shops. We are relaxed and check in/out times are not written in tablets of stone so just let us know if you wish to arrive earlier.
About the Host, Anne And Sam
Anne, After running an International Business and traveling the world I am happy to have "retired" to Fermanagh, back to my roots and indulge those homemaking skills of baking, jam making and sewing.
My husband Sam's indulgence is having his boat at his own back door while "retirement" means 10 years as voluntary Life Boat Operations Manager with the RNLI Enniskillen, one of the busiest stations in Ireland.
We have five children and soon to be eight grandchildren who all love the outdoor life, camping out on islands, making breakfast over an open fire, messing about in boats.
When you live by the water, every day looks different. Each morning when we get up and look out of the window we feel truly blessed to live in such a beautiful place.
My favorite motto is "Find something you enjoy doing and get someone to pay you to do it" while Sam practical as ever has a favorite saying "the water of life is free, but you have to pay for the buckets"
