Enniscoe Museum at The Mayo North Heritage Centre

Enniscoe, Castlehill, Ballina, County Mayo, Ireland

Once described as the last great house in North Mayo, Enniscoe House is an elegant Georgian manor house on Enniscoe country estate overlooking Lough Conn, in County Mayo in the West of Ireland - a region renowned for its wild and unspoilt landscape, its open peaceful spaces and its friendly welcoming people.

Enniscoe House is set in parkland and is surrounded by mature woodland, through which paths run to the lake

You can choose to wander around the Victorian walled garden and pleasure grounds, or take a boat out and try some fishing on Lough Conn. You will learn more about the local culture and traditions of Mayo when visiting the Museum and the Family History Centre on the estate.
