Directions to Inish Rath Island in County Fermanagh

inish rath island 2


Directions: Follow signs for Inish Rath Island from the B127 Derrylin-to-Lisnaskea road in south County Fermanagh.

From Derrylin mini-roundabout 3 miles in the direction of the B127 Lisnaskea road. After 3 miles slow and look for the right turn - Road sign says Inish Rath Island 2 miles. Follow signs to Inish Rath from there. Go to Ferry Quay.

From Lisnaskea, take the sign for Derrylin B127 at the mini-roundabout on main street. Follow this road for 5 miles. You go over one bridge, drive for 2 minutes, and then go over the second bridge. 50 metres after the second bridge is a left turn and sign saying 'Inish Rath Island 2 miles'. Follow signs to Inish Rath from there. Go to Ferry Quay. 

If you are coming from most of the Republic of Ireland see below. If you were coming from County Monaghan, you'd go through Lisnaskea (see above). If you were coming from the local West i.e. County Leitrim, you could go to Ballyconnel in County Cavan and then cut across through Teemore Cross, although going through Derrylin (see above) would be easier. You can follow the road signs from Ballyconnel to get to Derrylin.

From the South, go to Belturbet in County Cavan. On the far side of Belturbet is a roundabout. Follow the signs towards Enniskillen. 5 miles north of this roundabout is Teemore Cross (signposted) - you'll see the speed limit change to 40 mph. Take the right turn here (sign-post says: "Lisnaskea 9"). Follow this road straight on for 3 miles to its conclusion. The road ends at the lake. 50 metres before the lake is a left turn and sign says Inish Rath Island 1/4 mile. Go to Ferry Quay.

"...I had bought the (kirtan) album Prabhupada did in New York, and John and I listened to it. I remember we sang it for days, John and I, with ukulele banjos, sailing through the Greek islands... like six hours we sang because we couldn't stop once we got going. As soon as we stopped it was like the lights went out. It went to a point where our jaws were aching, singing the mantra over and over...We felt exalted; it was a very happy time for us"
