Enniskillen Campus history

The historic plantation town of Enniskillen dates from 1612 when the town was established by a charter from King James I. There is, however, evidence to suggest that land in this area was farmed during the Stone Age, over 6,000 years ago.

Initially founded in 1967, as Enniskillen College, the campus has provided over 50 years of high quality education and training.

The college offers agriculture courses to those students who want to remain close to home and travel into the college one day per week to complete part-time agriculture courses.

The equine-related education and training programmes were initiated at Enniskillen Campus during 1992. Subsequently, several additional courses have been developed to meet the needs of the equine industry. Enniskillen Campus provides the widest range of equine courses in the Ireland and has built upon its reputation over the past 25 years.
