Taste of Tyrone
1 Day Itinerary (except Sunday)
The Sperrin Mountains are perhaps Tyrone’s most famous feature and the farmers in the foothills of the Sperrins make the best use of the heather-rich land to raise excellent beef herds and with close proximity to Lough Neagh, fresh water produce is also abundant.
Start your journey by travelling to the Linen Green, Moygashel, just outside Dungannon. You have the choice of browsing the numerous shops including craft and gift outlets or simply sampling the fresh produce at the Deli on the Green.
Continue your journey to Ballygawley and The Suitor Gallery Gift Shop & Tea Room. Facilities include a large gift & craft shop, art gallery and a "Taste of Ulster" awarded tea room. Perhaps spend some quality time immersed in artistic talent while enjoying the local cuisine; hot cinnamon scones are a local specialty!
Arrive in the village of Fivemiletown on the border of Counties Tyrone and Fermanagh and visit the Fivemiletown Creamery. The creamery produces a number of award winning cheeses. Try their Cooneen, a goat’s milk brie and stock up the other mild flavoured cheeses at the dairy.
Complete your taste of Tyrone with a gourmet meal in Corick House, Clogher or Tullylagan Country House Hotel. Both also provide accommodation and a great place to stay in the region.
Cook with Norah at Grange Lodge in the heart of Tyrone. Norah Brown is one of Tyrone’s best loved characters and you can savour the finer points, and forgotten arts, of Irish cuisine at the bright red Aga in her cosy kitchen. Norah will give you a solid grounding in home cooking, from hearty stews and Colcannon cakes to sugary desserts and fruit preserves.
The Tyrone Farmer’s Market takes place the first and third Saturday of every month in Dungannon.
