The Lough Erne Resort provides the ultimate 36-hole golf experience featuring two championship golf courses offering superb all year round playing conditions and stunning views of both Lough Erne & Castle Hume Lough. The Faldo Course, which was designed by the six-time major winner Sir Nick Faldo, measuring 7,167 yards as a par 72, is regularly highly ranked in the top golf courses from both the UK & Ireland.
The Faldo Course, provides links-like fairways and perfectly true greens, with the spectacular Fermanagh lake-land setting providing a stunning backdrop for truly amazing views from every vantage point. This is a round where you will remember every hole and every shot with each hole individually named both in line with its individual traits and as a tribute to the local area. Every hole is beautifully framed in the natural landscape with the waters of the lough coming into play on 11 of the 18 holes. The course record of 68 was set by Rory McIlroy, and remains unbeaten. In the words of Sir Nick himself….
“I’ve played golf on every continent in the world and I can honestly say I am overwhelmed by the location and beauty of Lough Erne Resort” Sir Nick Faldo

Lough Erne Resort opened in 2007 and offers one of the finest resort experiences for both local and international guests alike. Nestled on a peninsula between Lower Lough Erne and Castle Hume Lough, the resort features 120 luxury rooms and suites, with the striking and uniquely turreted design of some of the lough-side lodges becoming synonymous with the resort. As the first AA rated 5-star hotel in Northern Ireland, the hotel has since gone on to win multiple awards, cementing it as one of the very best golf resorts on the island of Ireland.
Resort guests can indulge in the unique Thai inspired experience at the luxury Spa, where the expertly trained Thai and European therapist teams have developed luxury treatments using award winning ESPA products. The resort also boasts a variety of innovative dining experiences include The Catalina Restaurant, whose menus were created by the award winning Chef, Noel McMeel, The Blaney Bar, which exclusively serves some very rare Irish Whiskies, the Loughside Bar & Grill, with its breath-taking views, and the relaxing Garden Hall providing a second to none collection of Afternoon Teas.
Lough Erne Resort was also selected as the host venue for the 39th G8 summit held on 17–18 June 2013, where the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, described it as “one of the most successful and peaceful summits in recent memory”. The resort’s dedicated conference and event rooms can host anything from confidential board meetings to large-scale exclusive use events, and all six choices are flooded with natural daylight and inspiring views both the Lough and the Faldo Course. The Resort is nestled on the outskirts of Ireland’s only island town, Enniskillen, and within a short 90-minute drive of both Belfast and Dublin Airports.
