Groups can take a step back in history on a visit to Springhill, often referred to as one of the most unique 17th century Plantation homes in Ireland.
Lots to see and do..
Guided tours explore the ten generations of the Lenox-Conyngham family, 17th century furniture and family portraits. In addition, groups can enjoy visiting the renowned Costume Museum, which features a range of items dating from the 18th century. The gardens and grounds at Springhill are also to be admired with a stunning rose garden and woodland walks which provide stunning views of the Sperrin Mountains.
Wellbrook Beetling Mill is just a short 15 minute drive from Springhill and proves a fantastic visit and suits perfect if you're looking for a jam-packed day of fun. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see the last working water-powered beetling mill in Ireland.
Nestled in an idyllic wooded glen on the edge of the Ballinderry River, this historic linen mill showcases the traditional methods of scutching, hackling and weaving. Groups get a chance to hear the cacophony of the beetling engines and have a go at the spinning wheel.
