These famous stone circles are situated to the west of Lough Fea beside Davagh Forest.

Ardboe Old Cross

Castle Hill & Ranfurly House
September 2012 will see the return of the O’Neill’s to Dungannon, the ancient Capital of Ulster and to Castle Hill with a gathering of the ‘Clan’ for the official opening of the newly refurbished Ranfurly House and Castle Hill Gardens. The £5.5 million Castle Hill Project is supported by funding from Heritage Lottery, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Dungannon & South Tyrone Borough Council and delivers on the Council’s strategy to provide a gateway to the historic hill and create investment confidence in the Market Square as the focal point for visitors and business.
Situated at the top of Dungannon Town’s Market Square, Ranfurly House, named after Dungannon’s influential Ranfurly family, was originally built in 1854 for the Belfast Banking Company. The House commands the site of the former entrance way into Castle Hill where the remaining twin towers of the Knox Hannygton House stand and where it is reputed, rests the remains of Hugh O’Neill’s Castle that was the focus of Channel 4’s Time Team in 2008, discovering evidence of early habitation on the hill, confirming the strategic importance of the site since the middle ages.
