Very South of France
It may seem strange to compare Enniskillen to the South of France and yes, it may be an exageration but, on any weekend, in boating season, the total value of boats moored would be in the millions of pounds. Plenty of £500,000 boats about. Some of the 'ding...

Suddenly's boating season!
We have made the most of our time on Lower Lough Erne. For the most part we've had the lough to ourselves. Unbelievable. Even this last few days on Inish Davar, with the bluebells out, there have only been one or two short stayers. All change now. Easter is...

The good...the bad...and the downright ugly!
Cold and clear and calm said the forecast. What could be better for a 65 minute cruise up to the wide, or 'big' section of Lough Erne.  (Quotation marks not intended to confuse). We needn't worry about the line on the chart warning of rough seas in strong w...

Lower Lough Erne ... Feels like we are cruising!
Sadly, St Patrick's Day in Eniskillen was a total wash out. I felt so sorry for all who had put such effort into the day. Our highlight was helping tie up the boat St Patrick arrived on. He,promptly dashed off to get under cover!! Saturday afternoon and aft...
