Life of Reilly

by Stephanie Bell

Co Fermanagh aristocrat Lord Erne is set to share the beauty of the historic Crom Estate by selling his former Gamekeeper's Cottage.

The secluded property, known as Reilly's Cottage, sits on an unspoilt peninsula which extends to four acres, and includes its own private jetty, surrounded by panoramic views over some of the best fishing waters in Ireland.

Crom Estate is one of Northern Ireland's most important nature conservation areas.

Owned by the National Trust, it is home to wild deer and possibly the oldest yew trees in Europe.

Lord Erne, whose family have lived in the castle for centuries, says: "We have had some very special occasions at Reilly's Point; however, it is now time to allow someone else to share in the pleasures that this charming little place has to offer."

Reilly's Cottage is a traditional Irish cottage, with three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom with old stone walls and flagged floors inside.

While it needs renovation, all the charm is there.

It is within close proximity to Derrylin, Lisnaskea and Newtownbutler - and is just 20 minutes from Enniskillen and 90 minutes from Belfast.
