Enniskillen has the unique honour of being the only town in Great Britain and Ireland to confer its name on two regiments, the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards, now part of the Royal Irish Regiment and the Royal Dragoon Guards respectively.
Enniskillen Castle is the birthplace of our regiments, and a visit to the Inniskillings Museum is a journey through more than 330 years of a proud military heritage from their formation in 1689.
The museum houses a rich collection of personal treasures and battlefield curios, weapons and army vehicles, medals and uniforms, art and musical instruments, regimental silver and trophies.
Interactive exhibits, hands-on activities and life-size dioramas help our artefacts tell the acclaimed story of fearless Inniskillings who wore a castle on their badge with distinction.
Your ticket gets you into Fermanagh County Museum too.
