About

Sentry Hill is a 19th century farmhouse in the Parish of Carnmoney, County Antrim. The house and its contents provide a rare insight into life in rural Ulster during the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Sentry Hill was the home of the McKinney family, who came to Ireland from Scotland in the early 1700s. Remarkably the contents of the house have survived along with an extraordinary collection of artefacts, both from the local area and from around the world.

Sentry Hill offers an entertaining day out to visitors of all ages with facilities including guided tours, attractive gardens, a café, gift shop and picnic area.

Young people aged 16 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult on guided tours.

Pre-booked group visits are accommodated throughout the year. Visits by schools and groups of 10 or over must be booked in advance to ensure entry.
