Very latest Cookstown property and Mid Ulster property news from MJ Rafferty

Set in the foothills of the Sperrins, Cookstown district offers a wealth of attractive features for potential occupiers. For the last decade, town centre regeneration has been a key priority for Cookstown town planners. The result is a thriving, reinvigorated, market town.

Culturally, it has numerous historically and architecturally interesting sites including Ardboe Old Cross, Beaghmore Stone Circles, Tullyhogue Fort and Wellbrook Beetling Mill.

Regarding entertainment, Cookstown has it’s own Multiplex cinema and the Burnavon Arts Centre. It has a lively nightlife with many bars and restaurants.

On Saturdays, the town centre becomes a bustling mass of shoppers seeking bargains amongst the many open-air stalls. It's core multiples, all recent arrivals, are Asda, Tesco, Supervalu and Lidl. A new large shopping complex is also nearing completion in the very centre of the town.

Sports facilities have seen huge improvement in recent years, culminating in the local council recently opening state-of-the-art sports facilities centre on the edge of town. This compliments the current modern leisure & swimming facilities in the local leisure centre.


Education: There is a wealth of schools and colleges, with a new ‘integrated’ school and new college currently being constructed. Loughry Agricultural College continues to expand into different areas of expertise. The construction of a new 'police' college is still in the discussion stage.

Cookstown's transport infrastructure continues to show signs of improvement. With both motorways between 10-15 minutes drive away, Belfast is a mere 1-hour away. In fact, being so central, almost all N. Ireland towns and cities are within an hour’s drive. Belfast International, Belfast City and Derry City airports are less than an hour’s drive. Dublin Airport is 1 and ¾ hours away.
