An Creagan offers a range of facilities and activities for families, couples, individuals and groups and is located between the historic town of Omagh and the market town of Cookstown at the foothills of the Majestic Sperrin Mountains. There are many walks and cycle trails on the grounds or enjoy a picnic by the community garden and duck pond. Visit the interpretative exhibition on site which shows prehistoric monuments, the natural environment, heritage and the culture of the region.
The mountainous landscape of Creggan is dominated by bog, with dispersed settlements of small farms. The farmers stripped the bog making ridges, which were treated with lime to reclaim the land for farming. The string of many clachans at the edge of the bog is evidence of this type of reclamation.
Archaeologists, have identified seventy ancient monuments within a five mile radius of An Creagan, including, Court Tombs, Wedge and Portal Tombs, a Ring Cairn and Henge, Stone Circles, an Ogham Stone and Standing Stone. They date mainly from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Early Christian era. Tours to the major sites are available by arrangement with An Creagan.
