Florence Court

It was a rather damp August morning for the N I Branch’s summer outing, but the small party of 7 was in good cheer as they set off to Enniskillen. On arrival at the Royal Inniskillings Museum we were met with a very welcome cup of coffee and homemade scones. Following this, the group had a talk from the curators about the museum and the role the Inniskillings Fusiliers had in the First World War. There was then some time to look at the exhibits which included a very fine collection of silverware which posed the obvious question of who cleans it all?

We then moved to the new County Museum, in the same location, which wasn’t officially open for another week so it was a privilege to have a personal tour to see the exhibits which represented the long and varied history of Fermanagh.

By now it was lunchtime and the group travelled to the Killyhevlin Hotel in Enniskillen for a lovely lunch and catch up with friends.

Afterwards the group moved to the final destination, Florence Court. This 18th Century mansion was the former home of the Cole family and is now owned and maintained by the National Trust. We were treated to a tour by our very own ‘butler’ who told us about the history of the building and he pointed out the fine rococo plasterwork on display. At the end of the tour there was enough time to purchase a wee souvenir of the trip from the NT shop and then have a cup of coffee before setting off home to Belfast, after a very enjoyable day out.
