McConvilles Traditional Pub

McConvilles Traditional Pub

McConvilles is situated on the corner of Mandeville Street in Portadown since the 1800’s, when it was also a hotel.

Inside there is still the original wooden snugs, moulded ceilings and etched Russian oak fixtures in the Bar. They were replicated from a design on the famous ship, The Titanic which was built just over the mountains in Belfast. The only other pub in Northern Ireland which has the original snugs is The Crown Bar in Belfast. At the bar itself you will also find a well dressed man on the counter. Don’t worry, he’s a cigar lighter that’s said to be Sir Roger Tichbourne, the ninth richest man in Britain who disappeared in 1854.

McConvilles today is a thriving bar complex and a main stop for the majority of locals and visitors to the town. It includes Bar 2 and Euphoria Nightclub.
