Carleton’s Cottage

Historic Houses | Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland.



Visit the childhood home of the much-loved Victorian novelist William Carleton, well versed in Irish folklore and described by Yeats as ‘the greatest novelist of Ireland’. An annual literary festival held in August in the Clogher Valley celebrates Carleton’s work.

Why not take a driving/walking tour along the scenic Carleton Trail, sign posted throughout the Clogher Valley, with many interesting heritage sites along the way. Carleton’s Cottage is a fascinating place to see in Co Tyrone.

Address: Carleton’s Cottage, Springtown, Augher, Co Tyrone​ Northern Ireland

  1. Perhaps you could amend the spelling of the novelist’s name:
    It’s William CARLETON and not Carlton.

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
