Letterbreen ("Leitir Bhrúin" in Irish) is a hamlet in
County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, 5 miles south-west of Enniskillenon the main route to Sligo. It lies in the foothills of Belmore Mountain. "Leitir Bhrúin" meaning "Brún's wet hillside" is testament to a line of spring wells emerging from the settlement's northern hillside. The name Brún may be linked to an antiquity on Belmore Mountain: a chambered giant's grave.
The village contains a
Methodistchurch, a Church of Irelandchurch hall, a shop, a post office, a pub and several houses. It is served by a primary school at nearby Florencecourt. New residential developments earmarked for construction hint at a growing trend of dormitory towndevelopments in very small villages surrounding Enniskillen.
