Travel Blogs from Enniskillen
Leaving my beautiful hometown to head up the road to Belfast on Tuesday to catch my flight to London to stay a night with the sister. Have had a great time at home seeing a pile of friends from all over and family. Always great to have the craic with your mates. In the words of The Terminator, I'll be back!! Eventually.
... we decided it wasn't accidental. Heading round the house later we read the history of the various owners and saw that the unmarried penultimate owner had passed it on to his male friend and companion. Ah, got it. It's a lovely house, small but perfectly formed (smallish, at any rate, it still has rooms downstairs for the servants, and the tour is limited by the upstairs rooms being out of bounds) but the grounds are absolutely stunning. They come with a lovely sense of ...

Leaving the Abbey, we had a short time for lunch in Westport at O'Malleys pub. The little town is very colorful.
We then headed to Knock, where people come on pilgrimage from all over Europe. A number of years ago, an apparition of the virgin Mary was seen by some townspeople. Since that time, people come hoping for another ...

There were no waves so we went to the local tackle shop to see what fishing was on offer in the area. Tom fished a big lake called Lough Melvin with a very nice Irish fishing guide Francis. He caught ...
... open until six but we were treated to soup and a sandwich. The atmosphere is totally different than Molly's which had the, " I've been around a long time" vibe to it. As opposed to pictures of the Irish rebellion, Angler's had stuffed fish on the wall. Both places represented the diversity if their community well.
Based on advice from Molly's, we will be heading to Belfast in the am after some breakfast in Dungimmon House.

Historical Traveler Reviews Killyhevlin Hotel Enniskillen
My family and I are just back from a one night break in the Killyhevlin. Unfortunately I found the hotel to be very average in all aspects. While the room (family room) was a good size the decor wasn't great and the beds were tiny. The Lobby area is very small although does have a nice outlook over the lake. Most of our disappointment was with the service in the restaurant. We had dinner in the restaurant which we thought was very poor for the standard of hotel and price of the food. The service was also very bad as we needed to ask at least three times before we got anything we asked for. it was the same at breakfast - they had only one girl serving at the hot food counter -which really would have worked much better if it had been self service. Overall i would not say this hotel deserves the four star status it has been awarded. Overall a disappointing stay in a very average hotel.
Hello - its true that in life bad news travels faster than good and those who have an axe to grind are always more motivated to complain than those of us who have had a positive experience. In this I am no exception! In the past i have tried to be really balanced here on Tripadvisor in giving more positive than negative reviews.
Arrived at the hotel on the Friday evening for a 2 nite B&B + 1 dinner deal (not cheap!) to be allocated a room which had the distinct smell of tobacco in it after we had asked for non smoking room. We opened the windows for a while and the smell cleared.
Booked this short break some time ago - bit concerned to then read the reviews on this site! Stayed for 3 nights - ate in the restaurant for 2 nights. The food was fantastic! We have eaten in some fabulous hotels throughout the world, and the food in the Killyhevlin compares with the best. I'm vegetarian - VERY fussy eater! - and found the food to be wonderful! Portions huge (as I have come to expect in Ireland!) and beautifully cooked and presented. My husband says that the meat and fish were also cooked and prented to a very high standard - can't understand why the previous reviewers had cause to complain. The staff were all very friendly, and our lake view room was up to standard. Will certainly stay there again if we re-visit Enniskillen
Similar experience to the previous reviewer, the Killyhevlin is a good hotel but it is advertising as a Spa Hotel now and really could improve all round.
The hotel is located in a beautiful part of the country and the views from the rear of the hotel are splendid. We found the staff polite and attentive (except for that young lad at the bar who is due for a bit of customer service training).
Stayed here for 3 (fairly rainy) nights in August 2006. The location is great, with the bar / seating area offering lovely lake views.
This was en experience of sorts. From the location, photos, description and fellow traveller reviews, we figured: we are going to experience the Ireland we love.
My wife and I stayed one night here as a (very) quick break. Hotel was very nice, and a bonus was that the room given to us was better than the one we might originally have had, with a lovely view of the lough etc.
Nice hotel after a long drive
After having landed late at Belfast and then having to drive almost 100 miles to get to the hotel it was a great place to stay.
The room I had, had a great view of the loch and the sunset was lovely. The bathrooom looked like it had just been redesigned and was one of the best I have ever seen at a hotel.
Service on arrival was very good as was the evening meal service. The food in the evening was of a high standard and a reasonable price.
The only problem with the stay was the breakfast. Service was poor, mainly as there was a large group of people also staying at the same time. But it just knocked the gloss off a very good hotel.
