Rossharbour, a family-run lakeside resort in Fermanagh is celebrating its latest expansion following a £1 million investment with support from First Trust Bank.
Situated on the shores of lower Lough Erne, Rossharbour has completed extensive landscaping across its six acres of land and added 3 luxury self-catering lodges to the site, bringing accommodation capacity up to 84 guests. The resort now boasts 4 unique glamping pods each with a private hot-tub, 5 wigwams as well as six family-sized cottages.
After initially spotting an opportunity to cater to Northern Ireland’s fledgling glamping market 18 months ago, Rossharbour Resort has been steadily growing its business and now caters to a wide variety of guests including couples, groups such as hen and stag parties and families, as well as those looking for a traditional fishing weekend.
Along with a games room, sauna, spa and afternoon tea packages, Rossharbour has invested in its wedding facilities as it aims to expand Fermanagh’s wedding destination credentials. The Resort has two permanent event marquees along with an outdoor ceremony area.
The £1 million investment is just Phase One of an extensive expansion programme with the business planning to build a luxury spa and glamping pod village next year.
Speaking about its growth programme, Darren Johnston, Owner and Manager of the Rossharbour Resort said;
“It’s a pleasure to welcome such a diverse range of guests to Fermanagh each day and help showcase Northern Ireland as a premier holiday destination. My vision for Rossharbour was to create a resort that could capture not only the the beauty and calmness of the area, but also offer adventure and fun in a luxurious setting. I think this latest expansion sets us well on our way to achieving and building upon this vision.”
