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.

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