Lough Erne Pilgrim Trail

The Lough Erne Pilgrim Trail project focuses on the development of key sites around Upper and Lower Lough Erne.

The project will create a journey through improving physical and/or virtual access to each of the sites. The trail will be inspired by the historic pilgrimage route along the Erne to Lough Derg that can be used as a catalyst to engage visitors, residents and communities.

Project Objectives:

  • To enhance physical and/or intellectual access to at least 10 sites associated with the ecclesiastic heritage of the Lough Erne landscape area
  • To increase awareness and understanding of the history and heritage of the great island monasteries
