Lisnaskea

The second largest town in the county with a population of about 2,500. It is small compared to other major towns in Ireland but still has plenty of charm. During the times of the plantations Sir Michael Balfour took control of the town, but the control changed many times throughout the past. Historically the town is not lacking also, just off the Main Street can be found the ruins of Castle Balfour, built in 1618 by the Balfour’s. The castle was inhabited right up to the early 19th Century and is currently undergoing a restoration programme to return it to something approaching its former glory as the focal point of the village.
