Belturbet Heritage Town Trail
Belturbet takes its name from Tairbert Island and means ‘The Mouth of Tairbert’. Belturbet is a lively town and an excellent base for exploring the river and the Shannon-Erne Canal.
Strategically placed at the head of the River Erne, the O Reilly clan were dominant here and historically, the territory was known as East Breffni. Steeped in history, there are many interesting things to see along the heritage trail in Belturbet.
The trail begins in the centre of the town, known locally as the Diamond, across from the historic Town Hall. The trail takes you along the town with maps, information panels and plaques giving you further information on key sites.
Estimated Time: 1.5 hours.
