Road Directions within Ireland: Inis Rath is 7 miles from Belturbet in north Co. Cavan and 7 miles from Lisnaskea in south Co. Fermanagh. The quay adjacent to the island is easy to reach form the cities, e.g. Belturbet is straight up the N3 from Dublin, and Lisnaskea is reached directly form the M1 and A4 from Belfast.
Both drives from these cities take less than 2 hours. Or, if coming by bus, please see the section ‘From outside Ireland’ below.
Coming from the directions NW, W, SW, S and SE (e.g. Donegal, Mayo or Dublin) go to Derrylin (which is just north of Belturbet).
Coming from the directions N, NE and E (e.g. Derry, Belfast or Monaghan) go to the Spar shop in Lisnaskea.
Derrylin and Lisnaskea are linked by the B127 road, which traverses Lough Erne. If you are coming from the Derrylin direction slow down after 2 miles and watch out carefully for the sign and right turn.
If you are coming from the Lisnaskea direction then you will first go over one bridge, and then another, and the sign and turn-off is a left turn directly after the 2nd bridge. From this point from all directions simply follow the road signs to Inish Rath.
