Great views

If you want a bit of peace and lovely views to enjoy this is the place to be! We took a picnic there and spent a lovely afternoon. Just need the weather!

We found the whole thing quite disappointing. Great views of Cookstown and the surrounding area but the Fort itself was a let down. Not much to see.

Have been up at the fort hundreds of times as I live close by,The view is breath taking when you think back till a time when forestation would have covered 10 miles from Lough Neagh to about the Parish now known as Kildress.The area is steeped in History and with a new visitor centre to be built and better access...

A beautiful unspoilt area with a commanding view over mid ulster and further afield, best to go solo or small parties, to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, interupted only by sounds of wildlife in the skies or in the bushes. A true getaway from it all thought cleanser.

Tullyhogue Fort is a magical place which commands a spectacular view over the surrounding countryside. On a clear day you can even see the spires of St Patrick's RC Cathedral in the city of Armagh. The unique silhouette of the fort , provided by the trees against the sky, means that from any high vantage point around its usually very... More

Its fascinating to think of the history that has been created within this earthwork. My visit was on a rainy day but the mystique of this site is still entrancing. The prominence adds to the sense of ceremony.

Another ancient Irish monument we visited totally on our own. A lovely spot to imagine ceremonies in days gone by.

I hadn't planned on stopping at Tullaghoge Fort when in the Cookstown area but, when I saw a sign for it as I was driving along the B520 prior to the village of the same name, I decided to take the time for a visit. To get to it one must walk a broad concrete walk approximately 1/4 mile uphill... More
