McConvilles, Portadown

A traditional ‘snug’ bar with intricate wooden interiors and etched windows, McConvilles is the perfect spot to enjoy a quiet drink in
one of its original enclosed booths. The back bar is decorated with a
collection of Irish whiskeys so large, it would rival some museums.

Standing proudly in the heart of the Co. Armagh town of Portadown for over 150 years, McConville’s Bar has stood the test of time. If this building could talk, it would have some story to tell. Prohibition. The Roaring ‘20s. Conflict. Resolution. McConville’s has seen it all.

Spirited conversations and meetings of minds have taken place within these walls for generations, often spurred on by a dram or two of Irish whiskey.

A rich history of whiskey courses through the veins of this famous public house. A licensed premises has stood on this spot since the 1800s. Formerly a trusted wine and spirt merchant, McConville’s once bottled its own blend of whiskey, and today proudly houses one of the largest Irish whiskey collections in Ulster.

So why not pull up a pew, or take a seat in one of its original wooden snugs and you will be instantly transported back in time. With ornate moulded ceilings, original tiled floors and decorative etched windows sitting alongside original woodwork said to have been modelled on the Titanic, there’ll always be something here to catch the eye. McConville’s is proud of its rich history, its spirited past and its place in the hearts of local people. And so are we.
