So why not take a day out to steer a path through this ancient land of majestic beauty?

Discover Bronze-age standing stones and try to unravel their enigmatic carvings. Climb a Norman motte for jaw-dropping views of Ulster. Step into rural Ulster in the 1800s at Sentry Hill or feel the heat of industrial archaeology at Patterson’s Spade Mill. The choice, and more, is yours.
