Billed as “Lough Erne’s original hotel”, Gail Clarke's attractive waterside property was built in the 19th Century by a former owner of the Belle Isle Estate, John Grey Vesey Porter. Following several changes of ownership and a period of neglect, it was taken on by the current owners in 2004 and, thanks to their renovations and upgrades, it now offers a lovely venue for weddings and other events, and is an unusual place to stay and eat.
Bedrooms are appealing and a little quirky and, while most have lough views, others have a pleasant outlook towards Knockninny Hill. All have satellite TV and tea/coffee tray, and room service is available.
Meals are served in the attractive Porter House Bistro, overlooking the lough, and drinks and light food are available in the bar all day - to enjoy beside an open fire on chilly days or out in the fresh air in fine weather.
It’s a very pleasant outlook over the marina, with a holiday atmosphere, and a lovely spot to enjoy Afternoon Tea or a relaxing drink.
Self catering accommodation is also available at The Old Boat House (sleeps 8).
