I'm pleased to see the N Ireland Tourist Board finally able to celebrate its historical sites. This coronation spot for the historic kings is well restored with a snaking pathway to the top of the 'fort' --- merely a clearing --- with regular information boards marking both the historical chronology and archaeological detail. An atmospheric place --- we combined it... More

Well worth a visit.2 paths lead to the site. Shorter uphill path(quite steep but manageable if you go slowly) and winding longer gentle path. Lots of very informative notices. Great views in all directions.. The crowning place itself is surrounded by mature trees. Worth sitting on the ridge and imaging the scene when the O'Neill was crowned. Plenty of free... More

Cookstown was a wonderful place to base ourselves to enjoy the 400 year reunion of the Clan's focusing on The Great Hugh O'Neill

Off the tourist trail, you have to search this one out. Once there, you can see the strategic location of this fort. Not a visitor center but you can research later on line. Worth seeing.

A little hard to find, a parking lot on the inside curve of a busy road. From there, walk up a long hill, cross thorough the livestock gate, then read the single small sign and walk over to the two concentric soil hills that are all that remain of the "fort". With a compass you might be able to figure... More

We live locally but had never visited here before. Decided to take the dog for a walk. Free entry and parking. Amazing views of the town from the top of the hill. Steep walk but well worth it. I would definitely recommend to visitors.

A fairly long and steep walk up to the fort. This is the location where the ancient O'Neill Kings were crowned and is steeped in Irish history. Good walking shoes are essential when visiting this site. It reality, this fort is a mound within a corpse at the top of a hill. The views from the Fort are spectacular and... More

It was interesting to see where the O'Neill kings were crowned, it is one of many of O'Neill associated places in Ulster and probably the most important. It takes a while to walk up the hill to the fort, it is about half way between Cookstown and Stewartstown and has good views of Cookstown, the Slieve Gallion mountains in Co.Derry... More
