Killymoon Castle All-American WW2 Tour

302 Killymoon Road, Cookstown, County Tyrone, BT808ZA


Go back in time to discover Mid Ulster’s hidden heritage at a series of three unique visitor experiences starting this June, including a never seen before World War II exhibition at Killymoon Castle in Cookstown.  

The series starts on Saturday 18 June with the opening of a brand new experience at Killymoon Castle, Cookstown. You’ll meet Lady Molesworth of Killymoon Castle for a tour of her charming Castle. The afternoon will be spent in the company of Private Tony Vickery who’ll show you the original cellars in the Castle from his days in the 505th USA Parachute Regiment, who were stationed at Killymoon Castle during World War II.  He will tell you a little of what life was like for the soldiers and recounts stories of what some of them got up to while in Cookstown over a traditional light lunch in the Officers Mess.

Meeting Point: The Burnavon, Cookstown at 9.15am.

Cost: £20pp

To book: Contact The Bridewell Visitor Information Centre on 028 7963 1510.
