A bit more: Best bet probably is to stay in Enniskillen. It's only a
short drive from there to the Boho area. No restaurants in Boho--I don't
think the Linnet serves food. There is a small grocery and a few pubs in
Derrygonnelly (Doogie's is a good one) but several restaurants in
Enniskillen itself. It stays light quite late in July, so no trouble
walking around in town.
There IS a place to stay in Derrygonnelly called Tir Navar which is
excellent and has terrific breakfast, but I don't know if they do other
meals. You'd have to drive back to Enniskillen I think.
When you drive out of Enniskillen toward Boho, be sure to check out the
Lough Navar Scenic View on the B road after you go thru Derrygonnelly.
It's a long winding road up to the top that gives a spectacular view out
over Lower Lough Erne--you can practically see all the way to Ballyshannon!
On the same road before you get to Derrygonnelly, you'll see the Monea
C of I church on the right, worth a look for a lovely stained glass
window of St. Molaise, RC church just past it, and just beyond down that
same road it is a small castle (Monea Castle) from the 1600s worth seeing.

Hello all,My great-grandfather's family came from the Boho area -
townlands Toneel North and Legland mainly, which seem to be very rural. My husband and I
are planning to drive to this area in July, we would have 4 or 5 days to look up places
connected with the family, and also do some local sightseeing as it all looks so
beautiful. I am just wondering whether we would do better to stay in Enniskillen and
travel out from there, or stay locally as there are a few B&Bs or small hotels within
a few miles. What are the roads like? What have others done, can you see any disadvantages
one way or the other? I imagine evening meals could be difficult to come by in the
country? Any thoughts or advice would be very welcome. Best wishesVal Mc in sunny
