Set in rolling parkland amidst an archipelago of wooded islands and peninsulae in tranquil Upper Lough Erne, the Crom Estate in County Fermanagh, the historic seat of the Earls of Erne for over 350 years, enjoys an unrivalled location in the heart of Ireland’s Lake District.

Now you can fully experience the magic of this sublimely beautiful place by staying in the West Wing of Crom Castle itself.

The West Wing is available to rent all year round on a weekly or long weekend basis for groups of up to 12 people. You can tailor your stay to be self-catering, or if you would like to be looked after, a cook can be provided. Whether you are seeking creative inspiration, spiritual fulfilment or are planning a corporate get-together, a family holiday, or reunion, the interior elegance of the West Wing, together with the majesty and serenity of its surroundings makes Crom an irresistible destination.

<< Go back to the Southern Loop (Ride 2)


There have been incidences this summer (2017) of cyclists getting lost on the Southern Loop between Clones and Carrick-on-Shannon, due to inadequacy signage.   On investigation it appears that directional signs on certain sections of the route are missing, hidden by overgrown vegetation and in some cases have been vandalised to point in the wrong direction.

Therefore anyone planning to cycle the route solely by following the signage would be strongly discouraged from doing so.

We have passed on our concerns to the relevant councils and hope that these issues will be resolved quickly.  Thank you for considering the Kingfisher Cycle Trail.
