Rushin House Caravan Park has won Practical Caravan & Practical Motorhome magazines' Top 100 Sites Award as the 'Best Site in Northern Ireland' for six years in a row, 2010 - 2015 and again in 2017.
A quick look at what Rushin House campsite has to offer reveals why it's a winner for anyone who wants a camping holiday in Northern Ireland. It offers a tremendous location right alongside Lough MacNean, as well as a great level of facilities on-site. Recently the campsite has added an outdoor gym, which allows you to get fit while gazing at a lovely vista over the lake.
Although the site is only open from March to October, the owners will provide a handy 'aire de service' facility from November to February, by prior arrangement. This would particularly appeal to anyone looking for a motorhome stopover while touring Northern Ireland in the winter.
Rushin House Caravan Park is well located for exploring West Fermanagh and the surrounding areas of Cavan and Leitrim. If you like walking holidays, this site is close to the Ulster Way Walking Path. Dogs are welcome as long as they're kept under control.
Fishing is popular here and the site has a wooden fishing stand jutting into the still waters of Lough MacNean.
While some like fishing, others prefer cooking, and the next village to Belcoo is Blacklion, in County Cavan in the Republic of Ireland. Blacklion, under the Cuilcagh Mountains, is home to Ireland's famous chef Neven Maguire. He runs cookery courses and a top restaurant MacNean House and Restaurant,
Beleek Pottery and the Marble Arch Caves Geopark are two world-famous tourist attractions within a short distance of the park. A guided tour of the Marble Arch Caves takes you into an underground wonderland of impressive stalactites and stalagmites that you'd never suspect existed beneath the limestone hillside from the entrance and shop. When water levels permit, tourists can take a subterranean boat ride as part of their tour of the caves.
Other local attractions include Cuilcagh Mountain Park, Florencecourt House, Coralea Activity Centre, Enniskillen Museum and MacNean Sculpture Trail.
There are many other local events and festivals each summer. If you like motorsports, don't miss the international Circuit of Ireland race in Lisburn in April. This is followed in May, by the International North West 200, Ireland's famous motorcycle road race and festival in County Antrim.
