Welcome to Knockninny Country House & Marina - Some History
Our Guesthouse formerly "Tourists Hotel, Knockninny" was originally built during the 19th Century by John Grey Vesey Porter and was to become Lough Erne's original hotel. The wealthy owner of Belleisle Estate, Mr Porter was an entrepreneur and industrialist owning and managing the Woollen Mills at Lisbellaw, the Lisbellaw Gazette Newspaper and Knockninny Tourist Hotel.
From here he also operated Lough Erne's first Steamships; transporting passengers and cargo up and down the lough known as S.S. Knockninny and S.S. Belturbet. Having left no heir to his estate, the property was owned and occupied by a number of families over the past century but eventually fell into disrepair.
In 2004; the current owners set about renovating, rejuventaing and extending the property spanning 4 years; endeavouring to retain the fabric of the building with wooden sash windows, low, slanted ceilings, and the charm and character that once existed, Today, we are a 4 Star NITB Approved Guesthouse, offering B&B Accommodation, Self-Catering, Licensed Restaurant, Private Marina, Civil Wedding Ceremonies and Wedding Receptions.
