Loughgall Holiday Homes Armagh
Loughgall is a small 17th century village in Armagh County about three miles north of Armagh City and five miles from Lough Neagh. Loughgall is at the heart of the apple-growing industry and is surrounded by orchards. It is regarded as one of the prettiest villages in the district. There are plenty of scenic drives to be had, particularly around May when the trees are in blossom.
At the centre of the village is an enormous set of gates which lead to Loughgall Manor. An imposing building, the Manor was once the residence of the Cope family who arrived as part of the Plantation of Ulster in the 17th century.
Loughgall Country Park is set in a 188 hectare estate of open farmland & orchards and includes an 18 hole golf course and 37 acre coarse fishery. Nearby Peatlands Park (off the M1 motorway at junction 13) offers a visitor/education centre, railway, and miles of paths for exploration of the peat bogs around Lough Neagh.
Ardress House is located near the village of Loughgall. It was originally a 17th Century farmhouse, and is now owned by the National Trust. This farmhouse was converted to it’s present state by George Ensor when he married Sarah Clarke of Ardress in 1760.
