Cole Monument Tour

Get ready for an awesome adventure as you climb the 108 steps to the top of Cole’s Monument, where you’ll get stunning panoramic views of Forthill Pleasure Park and the charming island town of Enniskillen. From the top, you can see the beautiful Lough Erne, historic Enniskillen Castle, and the bustling town centre, packed with shops, cafes, and picturesque streets with its fabulous street art.

Ever wondered who Sir Galbraith Lowry Cole was? You’ll learn all about him, plus the quirky tale of Camomile Hill and Mr. Stanley Spenser’s incredible balloon flight. The tour dives into the rich history of Enniskillen, bringing the park’s stories to life.

Enniskillen, Ireland’s only island town is located between Upper and Lower Lough Erne, and is known for its vibrant culture, award winning hospitality, friendly locals, and rich history. From the monument, you can see key landmarks like St. Macartin’s Cathedral and Portora Royal School, which have played a significant role in the town’s history.

Remember, pre-booking is a must since each tour is limited to just 8 people and takes place every Saturday and Sunday from 2pm till 5pm. Only £3.50!

Heads up: Forthill Park is dog-friendly, but with those 108 spiral stairs to the top of Cole’s Monument, it’s not fair to bring your furry friend along for the climb. At Rossclare Lodge we are happy to mind your four-legged friend for a few hours for a small fee.
