‘Dunbar House’


Montgomery Finlay & Co. are proud to bring to the market this outstanding mid-Georgian estate home. Dunbar House, a Grade II listed landmark house of national, cultural and historic heritage, is one of Fermanagh’s most well-known and prestigious properties. Built around 1780, Dunbar House offers the potential new owners a beautiful period home, on the outskirts of Enniskillen, with views stretching over the Lough Erne Waterway.

Set on circa 11 acres of mature and private surrounding land, Dunbar House provides an excellent countryside setting in combination with its locality to Enniskillen Town Centre, schools and local amenities. The views over Lough Erne extend to Devenish Island and cover an area of cultural heritage, offering a rare example of period beauty.

The interesting history of Dunbar House explains how it was built in an attempt to win the hand of the Reverend Mark Noble’s Daughter. The house was built on high ground, by a suitor called Crozier, so the Lady could see it from Portora and vice-versa. Unfortunately, Crozier lost his life and house after losing a dual with Thomas Nixon, of Nixon Hall, - who also failed to win the Ladys hand! Dunbar house was occupied in 1802 as Nixon eventually married the daughter of the Lord Mayor of Dublin, one Jemima Alcock.
