Sion Stables
Not for Horses (anymore)

Sion Stables is a new visitor attraction located in the historic linen village of Sion Mills on the A5 between the Walled City of Derry and the Ulster American Folk Park. Formerly the stable block attached to the nearby Sion House, Sion Stables has won awards for the way in which this listed building has been conserved and brought to life again.  Sion Stables is an initiative of Sion Mills Buildings Preservation Trust in association with Hearth.
