With an ever low Euro Rate more and more people are staying in Northern Ireland and taking the new phenomenon -'The Staycation'. This the case for a young mum of 2 who just so happens to work in our busy East Belfast Office in Bloomfield. We asked her to give some tips and places to visit in our beautiful country.

' So having previously visited the North Coast on many occasions we thought we would try a different part of the country and head to Fermanagh. We found a self- catering house just outside Lisnaskea and used this as our base to see what Fermanagh had to offer. While driving through all areas I couldn't help notice all the beautiful properties in the area making the most of the green open spaces and lakes. We have 2 young twins age 9 so it was important we had a property where they could run around and be safe. We definitley found this and it had a lot on site to entertain them including swings, trampolines and hot tubs'

' We found some fantastic places to visit and also hired a small boat to explore some islands. The island we went to is called Devonish Island and has the remains of an old monastry. It was great to explore and have a picnic. We also visited Crom Castle run by the National Trust and probably our favourite place was the Marble Arch Caves. Here we were all fascinated by the history and the formations of thousands of years in these caves.

All in all the trip was great and we would highly recommend it to anyone as there is so much to do for all ages'
