In Ireland, a barony is a historical geographical unit: normally a subdivision of a county, although some baronies straddle county boundaries as a result of subsequent reorganisation of local government. The names and boundaries of baronies were defined during the Anglo-Norman and later English conquest of Ireland, although in many cases, they correspond to earlier Gaelic territories, and some were subsequently subdivided.

There are 8 historic baronies within County Fermanagh.
