Head Back In Time

Tullaghoge Fort, the Hill of The Young Warriors, is our sister site, located outside Cookstown. It was a royal power centre that came to historical prominence in the 11th century, when it became an inaugural place for Cenel nEogain (later the O’Neills).  The leaders of the Clan O’Neill were crowned there, the last being Hugh O’Neill, whose home was Hill of The O’Neill, Dungannon.

Tullaghoge Fort is an 18 minute drive from Hill of The O’Neill & Ranfurly House.

If you have an interest in American history, nearby is the US Grant Ancestral Homestead. Here you can explore the cottage of the Simpson family, which had close ties to Ulysses Simpson Grant, the Commander of the victorious Union troops in the American Civil War and then President of the USA.

And even further back in time…

Beaghmore Stone Circles are an early Bronze Age megalithic complex of seven stone circles, standing stones and cairns. The site was discovered by chance by peat-cutters in the 1940s.

Beaghmore Stone Circles are just a 30 minute drive from Hill of The O’Neill & Ranfurly House.
