Introducing Cookstown

Cookstown boasts the longest (2km) and widest (40m) street in Ireland, the legacy of an over-ambitious 18th-century town planner, but apart from that there’s not much to see in town. The main sights here are in the surrounding countryside.

The tourist information centre (8676 9949; www.cookstown.gov.uk; Burn Rd, Cookstown; 9am-5pm Mon-Sat year round, 2-4pm Sun Jul & Aug) is in the Burnavon Arts and Cultural Centre, west of the main street.
