LISGOOLE ABBEY, near Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, is a two-storey, three-bay, gable-ended Georgian house with a battlemented tower at one end.
There is a fan-lighted doorway, with a large window inserted later in the bay to the right of the doorway.
The present demesne plan is much as it appears on the 1830s OS map, together with early 19th century Gothic-style house at the lough shore.
There is mature planting in the shelter-belt and some parkland trees, including exotics, though the area is intensively farmed and many parkland trees had gone by the beginning of the 20th century.
A maintained ornamental garden at the house has a rose-garden, originally developed in 1905 and replanted with 400 new roses in 1982; and a pergola.
An area of specimen trees and shrubs set in grass lies to the north of the house.
The part-walled garden is maintained with box hedges, fruit, vegetables and flowers but not to the original layout.
The Farm Museum contains old farm machinery and gardening equipment used on the estate in the past.
This estate comprised 743 acres during the 19th century.
