What to see / Things to do
Tyrone and the Sperrin Mountains have a special charm, especially for walkers. Some of the most beautiful sections of the Ulster Way pass through the county, a highlight being the Craignamaddy Circuit.
Beaghmore Stone Circles - Beaghmore is a complex of early Bronze Age megalithic features, stone circles and cairns, 8.5 miles north west of Cookstown, County Tyrone in Northern Ireland, on the south-east edge of the Sperrin Mountains.
Ulster American Folk Park - an open-air museum just outside Omagh, in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. With more than 30 exhibit buildings to explore, the museum tells the story of three centuries of Irish emigration. Using costumed guides and displays of traditional crafts, the museum focuses on those who left Ulster for America in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
The Sperrins Sprint, Cookstown - A scenic and wonderfully traffic-free route through mid-Ulster, this is one of the most romantically wild areas in Ireland. The Sperrin mountains are both rugged and curvaceous with many stopping places of interest.
Ardboe High Cross - is a high cross and national monument located in Ardboe, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It was the first high cross built in Ulster.
Castle Caulfield - a large ruined house situated in Castlecaulfield, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The building was three storeys high with attics, many large mullioned windows and tall chimneystacks. A joist from one of the walls was dated using dendrochronology to about 1282 and may belong to an earlier fort. There are substantial remains. The oldest part of the existing building is the gatehouse, which has Tudor-style doorways, murder-holes and gun-loops. The Caulfeild arms appear over the entrance.
