Formerly known as ‘The Inn of Maghera’ Walsh’s Hotel has a long and chequered history.

It is traditionally believed that Jack O’Neill, of Ballygawley, Co. Tyrone built the first hostelry … This was made possible through him finding a crock of silver on a hill outside Maghera and it was from this discovery the hill got its name ‘Silver Hill’.

In the stirring days of 1798, a romantic incident occurred at the Inn. One day, a pretty maid, daughter of the proprietor, Jack O’Neill, was watching the approach of a troop of cavalry from an upstairs window overlooking the Main Street, when she was espied by a handsome Captain Lamont, riding beside his Colonel at the head of the Yeows. In a flash, he announced to his superior officer, “That girl is going to be my wife,” which words proved prophetic.

Steeped in a Irish lore this cosy warm and hauntingly inviting hotel hides a dark secret for things do go bump in the night … Spectres have been seen roaming the old part of the Inn … and tales of icy cold winds have been felt when no source nor draft can be detected …
