Shane's Castle

Shane's Castle

Visit the ancient ruins of Shanes Castle on the shores of Lough Neagh, ancestral home of the Clanaboy O’Neills and more recently, one of the locations for Game of Thrones filming.  Hear the stories of the family Banshee and see the mysterious black face on the rock which must remain in place to protect the continuation of the dynasty.

Enjoy afternoon tea at the old railway cafe where the miniature railway once stopped.  A ritual dating back to the 1800’s, celebrating afternoon tea is an

indulgent ceremony in the grounds of the castle.  Scones baked for smothering in cream and jam, finely sliced sandwiches and delicate pastries served with tea – all baked locally at the lock-keepers cottage.
