A scenic drive along the south side of Lower Lough Erne takes you to the border town of Belleek, with its fascinating pottery producing the world famous parian china. A return trip along the
north side of the Lough, across Boa Island, provides some outstanding views and photographic opportunities.

There are plenty of restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. For a daytime snack or lunch in town, we recommend Rebecca's Coffee Shop in the Buttermarket. Other recommended restaurants in town include Franco's and Café Merlot, but there are numerous places to choose from. Local favourites include the Carrybridge Marina and Restaurant near Lisbellaw, the Pinsapo Mexican restaurant in Tempo, and the Steak House in Ballinamallard. For a scenic drive followed by an excellent dinner, we recommend The Anglers Rest in Ballyconnell, about 18 miles away.
Nearest to Derrygiff is the Sheelin Tea Room in Bellanaleck, and the award winning MacNean Bistro in Blacklion (booking recommended).
There is an excellent fish and chip shop in Bellanaleck, and a very good Chinese Takeaway on the Sligo Road on the way into town, if you fancy a night in.
There are two pubs just a mile away in Arney, one of which has an off licence
attached and another 1.7 miles away at the junction of the Sligo and Swanlinbar Roads.
