LAKELAND ADVENTURE

BASECAMP, LAKESIDE…

If you’ve been to Enniskillen, it’s likely you’ve caught a glimpse of the Killyhevlin Hotel on the way into town - the bright, crisp white and slate-roofed building surrounded in greenery is just about visible from the main road.

While the main 4* hotel has a lot to offer, for this adventure our minds were on something special just ‘out the back’…

KILLYHEVLIN LAKESIDE LODGES

Refurbished just last year, our home for a few days was one of Killyhevlin’s beautiful lakeside lodges.

With two en-suite bedrooms (king + twin), fully integrated kitchen, living space and an external decked area with seating and parasol, we could easily spend a fortnight here.

It even has WiFi if you need a quick fix.

We tried not to though.

AND they’re pet friendly.

*Max wasn’t actually able to come on this one. Pre-booked elsewhere. The life of an Adventure Dog, eh? So just a Photoshopped image for demonstration purposes. The scale is just about right.

:)

EATS AND DRINKS

With a few ‘day activities’ planned, we saved a bit of time (and money) by eating-in each night.

With views like this, wouldn’t you?
(Maybe you will…more on that later 👍)

Night 1 was a Tesco Indian meal deal that we grabbed in Enniskillen earlier in the day. Grand total of a tenner including wine.

Night 2 was a ‘bit of everything’ that we had brought with us; a selection of meats, cheese, breads, olives plus a few local favourites - Broighter Gold Rapeseed & Garlic Oil, Abernethy Butter, Achill Island Sea Salt and Florentines from Joy’s Artisan Foods (St George’s Market).

TO THE WATER

The other thing a few of the lodges have - a jetty!

Nice colour choice :)

A quick tutorial and we were off…
