Carrybridge is a hamlet in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. It is within the townland of Carry (from Irish Caraidh or Cora)[1] between Upper and Lower Lough Erne and serves as a marina. The area inholds Derryharney Church of Ireland and the Carrybridge Hotel, as well as the iconic bridge over the lough.

On 11/12 December 1956, the bridge was badly damaged by a thirty-five pound mine which had been planted there by the Irish Republican Army during their 1956 campaign.[2]
