Why not spend the festive period with us at Share Discovery Village as we transform to Share Village on Ice? Look no further for things to do with the family, as we at SHARE have plenty of fun Christmas activities to keep you entertained over the holiday season.
Exciting Winter activity for the family
Share Discovery Village brings the long anticipated return of the only synthetic indoor ice rink in Fermanagh! Our Ice Rink was a massive success last year, with almost 9,000 people joining us for a skate. This year, we have gone bigger and better with the Synthetic Ice Rink and have got new additions to make your skating experience the best it can be.
Our enchanting Synthetic Ice Rink is set in the midst of a massive display of sparkling fairy lights. As soon as you enter through the doors, you are transported to a magical world where you can glide through the Synthetic Ice for the next hour.
Wheelchairs on our Synthetic Ice Rink
Our fully accessible, wheelchair friendly rink provides an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the festive fun, and as mentioned, the eco-friendly rink is indoors so no need to feel the chill from the winter wind. In addition, we have a brand new curling lane coming for 2022 so you can try your hand at a fun winter olympic sport and see if you can beat your friends to get closest to the target.
Skaters of all ages and abilities can enjoy the festive rink, so whether you’re a champion figure skater or a brand new first-timer you’re bound to have a great time on the ice.

Delicious refreshments available at the rink
When you’re finished on the ice, you can fill up with our delicious, freshly served food and hot drinks provided by the Village Cafe.
Maybe you’d like to sip a hot drink to recharge after the ice? It’ll be difficult to pick between having a latte, a cappuccino, a nice cup of tea or a sweet hot chocolate to finish off your skate session.
Or you might prefer to dine out and have one of our tasty meals during your visit – just check out our great menu here with a variety of choices. Top it all off with some cool Maud’s ice cream or choose between a red or blue slushee (or asked for a mixed one!) at our Synthetic Ice Rink reception.
