Welcome to Tyrone

Welcome to Tyrone, a largely rural county of fertile pastureland, forests and bogland. Tyrone's rivers and lakes provide excellent angling opportunities particularly on the River Blackwater and in Lough Neagh. With the unspoilt slopes of the Sperrrin Mountains, stunning scenery and an array of history and heritage sites, Tyrone is made for outdoor pursuits.

Things to Do

  • Ulster American Folk Park: With more than 30 exhibits to explore, this open air museum tells the story of those who emigrated from Ulster over the last two hundred years. Visitors are shown by costumed guides how people lived in poverty stricken areas in cottages, spent what little they had on passage to the New World, and how many ended up settling down on the great American Frontier. Along with the museum there is also a Centre for Migration Studies, where visitors can research Irish migration from 1600 to the present day.

  • Beaghmore Stone Circles: This mysterious site is a bit off the beaten track but well worth the visit. Discovered during peat cutting in the 1940s the site at Beaghmore consists of 7 stone circles. This massive Bronze Age site was discovered during peat cutting in the 1940s and is made up of seven stone circles of different sizes, twelve cairns and ten stone rows. Nobody knows whether this ancient site was used as a burial site or as an observatory for charting the sun and the moon.

  • Hill of The O’Neill: Situated above the town of Dungannon is the ancient seat of the O’Neill clan, who ruled much of the northern half of Ireland during medieval times. The views from the top of this hill are stunning, allowing the visitor to see seven other counties in Ulster. At the bottom of the hill is Ranfurly Arts and Visitor Centre which features an exhibition explaining the Hill’s importance throughout Gaelic Irish history, the Flight of the Earls and subsequent Plantation of Ulster.

  • An Creagán: This hidden gem between Omagh and Cookstown offers a range of activities for individuals, groups and families. Nettled in the foothills of the Sperrin Mountains, the visitor centre features an interpretive exhibition on the archaeology and history of the area, as well as a restaurant and local craft shop. From there you can walk, cycle and explore the main trails the area has to offer.

  • Davagh Forest: The Davagh Forest Trails are located in the stunning Sperrin Mountains and offer some of Ireland's most exciting cross-country mountain biking. With mountain biking trails to suit all abilities as well as a pleasant riverside walking trail, this is the perfect adventure for anyone who loves travelling on two wheels.

  • Harry Avery’s Castle: The ruins of this perplexing castle are thought to have been built and named by a Gaelic chieftain of the O’Neill clan. The hilltop ruins date from the 14th century and offer great views of the countryside which are well worth exploring. It is one of the few stone built castles built during this time for an Irish ruler, as most Irish castles would have been largely constructed with wood.

  • Gortin Glen Lakes: The Gortin Glen Lakes offers superb views of the Sperrin Mountains and its surrounding landscape. This peacefully beautiful region is a natural blend of peaks, forests, moors, valleys, lakes and rivers. It can be enjoyed on foot, by bike, or even by canoe and is the perfect location for camping.

  • Todd’s Leap: For those looking for the ultimate adrenaline adventure, Todd’s Leap is the place for you. This award winning Activity Centre based in Ballygawley offers plenty of action packed activities to groups of all sizes and all ages, including 4x4 OffRoad Driving, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Paintball, Body Zorbing, Archery, Zip Line and many more.
