General information

Peatlands Park
Apple Day at Peatlands Park - Traditional Music
Peatlands Park 2

We invite you to come and explore Peatlands Park. This beautiful area has a wonderful wilderness appeal and is situated near the shores of Lough Neagh just off the MI at exit 13 south of Dungannon. Visitors will be able to experience both peatland and woodland habitats in addition to taking in the amazing views of the wildlife. A wide range of animals can be seen here which include meadow pipits and cuckoos, and many types of insects such as butterflies, moths, dragonflies and damselflies. Many woodland and wetland birds as well as many species of waterfowl nest here. Red and grey squirrels, badgers and hares are also present, while lizards and newts can be found in the open bog areas.

Within the Park are two National Nature Reserves, which have unique flora and fauna species, many of which are found nowhere else in Northern Ireland. Annagarriff (meaning rough bog) is a 77 hectare reserve comprising of wooded drumlin hills separated by areas of regenerating cut-over bog. Mullenakill (meaning church on the hill) is a 22 hectare uncut remnant of a much more extensive bog which has been growing here for over 8,000 years and is around 9m deep.

Details of accessible park routes can be obtained from our local staff.
