Castle Coole is similar in look to Florence Court house when viewed from the outside. Once again inside, though, there is quite a difference. Both are heavily into symmetry with the use of false doors and the like but Castle Coole is more opulent. We took the guided tour with the very personable and knowledgable Andrew.

Had a wonderful morning wandering the grounds and stables having walked from Enniskillen. Nice little shop and plenty of spots to take in the views of the lake and surrounds. The house is beautiful and well worth a visit.

had a really good guide (Keith) showing us around the castle or palace, ended up exiting via a unique servants tunnel back to the courtyard area. weather was good so had a stroll around the estate.most enjoyable
We enjoyed the tour of Castle Coole recently. Our guide was so friendly and very well informed. She made the house come alive with tales of times past. The house is well looked after by the National Trust. We had lunch in the cafe which was scrummy. All in all, a great way to spend an afternoon.
Ive used Castlecoole for years. My children grew up walking.exploring.excercising and loving it. I have 100.s of very happy memories both with my children.our dogs and alone going round Castlecoole. Its just so peaceful.beautiful.interesting and for me totally calming. I excercise her myself and with friends. I call it "my special place"!
Very interesting Georgian house in extensive grounds. Can only be visited on a tour booked from the visitor entrance. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. Well worth visiting.
