Omagh is the county town of County Tyrone, Ireland.


Often deemed Northern Ireland's "third city", Omagh's history is as rich and diverse as its homogeneous lower-class residents. all 68,300 of them.Omagh is known throughout the world for its annual dogshows, famous playwrights, and first-rate roller-coaster factories, amongst other things.

Get in

Consistently voted Northern Ireland's seventeenth most popular hotspot, all public transportation in the province is geared towards Omagh and its surrounding suburbs. Thrice-hourly buses and trains from the inferior "cities" of Belfast and Derry will transport you comfortably to the town's pristine bus station, which glimmers in the sunlight like a jewel fit for the kings of olde. If unlucky enough to choose a non-direct mode of transport, other stops en route (such as Strabane, Dungannon, and soforth) should be avoided at all costs. The only phrase you'll need is: "A single to Omagh, please!"

Get around


Omagh prides itself on it's consistent election of maverick candidates to local office. A result of this is the large number of bizarre landmarks and attractions that are scattered about the town; made as throwaway election promises, but delivered nonetheless. Take some time exploring the light rail network, and you can fit in the majority in a few short days.


No visit to Omagh or the surrounding areas would be complete without dabbling in the local tradition of streetdrinking. This is usually accompanied by copious amounts of Buckfast, a tonic wine produced in Devon, but insanely popular in Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as the Republic. Popular drinking hotspots include the Grange Park and the Riverbank. Go ahead - give it a try!
