Enniskillen, N. Ireland

Enniskillen Airfield is set in one of the most picturesque areas in the British Isles.  It is located just 3 nm north of the city of Enniskillen on the shores of Lough Erne in Northern Ireland, which is also known as the ‘Lake District of Northern Ireland’.

The airfield was first built in 1941 and used during World War II as RAF St. Angelo.  Since 1996 it has been in private ownership as a civilian airfield with scheduled flights operating from there until 2006.  It is one of only 5 licensed airfields in Northern Ireland, and is an ideal base to tour the whole of Ireland as holiday homes for pilots.

With the support of both the airfield owner and the land owner of the field adjacent to the disused part of the eastern taxiway, a planning application is being submitted for 10 hangar homes plus one to be used as a clubhouse for residents and visiting pilots, with a 10m x 5m swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room in the ‘hangar’, a gym in the ‘garage’, changing rooms and showers in the entrance hall and a pilots lounge and bar upstairs overlooking the airfield and the lakes.  Should planning permission be granted for this development, then building could start in 2024 for occupation in 2025. If anyone is interested in owning one of these unique hangar homes on arguably the most stunning GA airfield in the UK, then please register via the Contact Form.
