Nestling at the foothills of the Sperrins, where the Camowen and Drumragh rivers merge to form the River Strule, this busy commercial centre is easily accessible from all parts of Northern Ireland.

Situated 70 miles from Belfast and 34 miles from Derry - Londonderry, Omagh is the perfect launch pad to explore the beauty of the local countryside and an ideal stopover for visitors.

Omagh is a truly great town. It has character, characters, heritage, great shops, pubs, clubs, restaurants and entertainment. We've got the Sperrin Mountains, the Ulster American Folk Park and Ulster History Park, all on our doorstep. The cultural traditions are very much alive and encouraged in Omagh, so its well worth a visit with plenty to do, see and enjoy.

Omagh is committed to not standing still with ambitious plans to further the development of the Town Centre, with the River Strule, new shopping developments and a 13 million College Development some of the key features.
