Coordinates: Killymoon Castle is a castle situated about one mile (1.6 km) south east of Cookstown, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, on the north bank of the Ballinderry River. An 18-hole golf course has in recent years been built on the parkland, where British tournaments have been played.
The original Killymoon Castle, which was built in 1671, burnt down in 1801. It was rebuilt in a larger version in 1803 to a design by John Nash. It is an asymmetrical structure with both round and square towers and Regency Gothic interiors.
Currently Killymoon Castle is a private residence, although the recent addition of a tea room has opened the castle to public visits. The grounds and interior are popular for wedding photographs, due to well kept gardens and period internal decor.
