Stayed weekend 10th &11th Nov 17. Glamping pod was clean and warm, had everything u needed for your stay. Staff are excellent we did the Zorbing and the guys were so nice think it was (Paul) and his team deff worth a go. We also did the Tree top walking with Niamh & Aiofe they were so helpful and friendly made the experience great for us. It amazing walking through trees ,zip lining and what can only be described as Tree jumping at the end. Such a thrill. Couldn't recommend the place and those activities enough.

This leisure centre has experienced big improvements over the past few years and the initial clinical and unfriendly feel after the renovations has now given way to a more welcoming atmosphere. It still needs users to point out failings to ensure standards are maintained. Unhealthy food choices in the cafeteria do not sit well in a centre promoting health.

Brysons Bar

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member

While on holidays from Australia we stayed a couple of nights at Magherafelt. While there we went to Brysons Bar, what a great place to have a pint and a meal. The staff and food was second to none, staff members could not do enough for us, while the food was extremely tasty, hot when it got to the table and the seevice was very quick. I would highly recommend Brysons bar to all locals and travelers. A very special hello to Teresa and all the staff.

What a unique and wonderful day we had tracing the footsteps of Seamus Heaney! Fergal planned a visit to a wide range of different sites in Bellaghy, offered the history and significance of each in Heaney's early years, and recited various Heaney poems that referenced each site. Not only was Fergal very knowledgeable, he also personalized the day for us based on our questions. After the tour finished, Fergal even emailed us a photo that related to one of our questions about the area. This tour was a highlight of our holiday! I highly recommend InSite Tours of Ireland! You won't be disappointed!

Ronan Valley

Reviewed By Michael M

Spent a lot of time growing up around this golf course. Worked in it for several years. It's a challenging par 3 throughout so it's good for families to play or if someone wants to improve their game. A unique course to any other I have played. To anyone visiting Magherafelt on a holiday this is a must

Meadowlane Shopping Centre

Reviewed By timeagain - Northern Ireland

Not much changed yet despite the completion of a curvy stretch of tarmac bypassing this sleepy sleeper town. Though relatively small Meadowlane has not suffered the same fate as other malls where we see a plethora of empty units. Still thriving thanks to the loyalty of the local population it remains an important part of the Magherafelt landscape.
