About the village

Ardress House in Annaghmore, was originally a modest farmhouse which was transformed in 1760 by Dublin architect George Ensor. It is today owned by the National Trust and contains examples of 18th century furniture and a display of paintings. It includes plasterwork in the drawing room made by Michael Stapleton in 1780. The farmyard and outbuildings show aspects of farming history with a display of farm implements. There is a garden with examples of early types of Irish rose.[3]

The ‘Ladies Mile’ is a woodland walk around the estate.

Former railway

Annaghmore railway station was opened by the Portadown, Dungannon and Omagh Junction Railway on 5 April 1858. It was closed by the Ulster Transport Authority on 15 February 1965.[4]
