    The centrepiece of your visit to the Hill of The O’Neill is the permanent exhibition in Ranfurly House. This tells the story of the Flight of The Earls and the Plantation of Ulster, and the important role that Dungannon played in these two historical events that would forever change these islands.                                                                       

    The exhibition vividly evokes the life of Irish chieftain in the 16th century, in its extravagant fashions, fighting and feasting.

    You’ll find out about the Plantation of Ulster, what it was, who the Planters were and the difficulties they faced. You’ll also discover how Ulster, administered from Dungannon by Sir Arthur Chichester, was changed forever, moving away from the ancient Gaelic laws and beliefs.

    It’s a gripping story that once heard, will never be forgotten.

    From the indoor exhibition, you’ll make your way to the next stage of your visit – on to the famous Hill itself!
