Tomney's
Tomney's The Square
The Moy
BT71 7SG
(028) 8778 4755 (T)

Tomney's in the beautiful village of Moy is a real gem. It's at least 300 years old. Stained glass windows. A compendium of little rooms such as a delightful French room, perhaps used by French cavalry officers attending the great Moy Horse Fair. Collector's item abound, from naff 60's compilation albums to the more subtler pieces. It is like walking into someone's house, especially when you sit down in front of an original Aga to listen to live traditional music.

The back lounge is reminiscent of a railway carriage and was once a coffin store. The front bar is small and dark and surrounded by mirrored pillars and top reminiscent of a Wurlitzer juke box. The family owners are very friendly. Popular with all ages, its quaint charm beckons for a return visit, which I do.

This is one of the "Famous Pubs Trail".

Conway's
Conway's 26 Main Street
Newtownstewart
BT78 4AA
(028) 8166 1277 (T)

Once a two storey thatched pub, a previous owner added the top floor. The old petrol pump outside (one of the first in the country) has long since gone. The front bar is small and simple, with a small side room to the right of the entrance. The premise now has a modern front door and the side loungs a modern laminate floor. A collection of water jugs and a beaten brass effect lighten the high painted ceiling. To the back is a small unadorned lounge with a welcoming 60's style fireplace. The owner and locals are friendly. Toilets, including the ladies, are outside to the rear.


Gallagher's
Gallagher's 8 Mill Street
Newtownstewart
BT78 4AY
(028) 8166 2141 (T)

The "first & Last" is a basic town bar with plastered walls, tiled floor and a good, brick faced open fire. Note the 60's cocktail style panel above counter and the old mirror proclaiming the name of the bar. Complimented by 60's panelling behind bar and on ceiling. Outside gent's toilet. To the side is an old fashioned but comfortable lounge bar with fireplace, dartboard and small serving counter. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly, it is owned by an old lady with no offspring to pass the pub on to, so this may have a limited lifespan.


Keirys
Keirys 38 Main Street
Donaghmore
Dungannon
BT70 3EZ
(028) 8776 1359 (T)

Traditional small town centre pub, 3 storey coloured brick facade with large street arch into the back area. Narrow bar and lounge. The bar has a tiled floor and bar front and bar stools only. Note the large Kinaghan's liquor mirror. Open darts room to the rear, leading to the toilets and large exterior back area and beer garden. Good selection of foreign bottled beers. The lounge is long, narrow running from the front with its partial wood floor to the carpeted rear. Whiskey mirrors and wood burning stove. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.

Newly established gastro pub already making a great name. Alexander Mackenzie built the premises here at the end of the 18th Century. He was the owner of the Brewery at Donaghmore, which was founded in 1797. Looking good after a refurb it hosts 100+ diners. The narrow front entry door leads into the downstairs which runs to both sides of the bar and leads out to the back. An upstairs room has a balcony overlooking the bar. Good food and wines. A huge range of bottled beers and now opening up its own brewery - The Red Hand Brewery.
