Tullyhogue, also called Tullaghoge[1] or Tullahoge[2][3] (from Irish Tulach Óc[4], meaning "hill of youth"[5]), is a small village and townland[6] in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It is within the civil parish of Desertcreat and is about three kilometres south of Cookstown.

Nearby Tullyhogue Fort was the crowning place of the kings of Ulster until the Flight of the Earls in 1607.
