The traditional thatched cottages add to the beauty and tranquillity of Tully Cross village. The local Church (R.C.) with its stained glass windows by renowned artist Harry Clarke overlooks the square. A notable feature of this village is the Ogham Stone; the ancient script spells out the name of the townland, Gurteenachough, meaning little garden of stones.
There is a great sense of a thriving community in Tully Cross which is well served. At night the place comes alive with "mighty craic" in the local bars. It is a favourite spot with tourists and locals alike looking for a music session either traditional or contemporary.
