Welcome to Friels Historic Bar & Restaurant. We’re a 5th generation, family run, award winning, Irish Bar and Restaurant nestled in the heart of the South Derry countryside in the picturesque village of Swatragh. We’re halfway between Belfast and Derry just off the Glenshane Pass. The bar has been in the family name for over one hundred years. Friels is a pub with an original wooden ceiling, ornate bar counter and a roaring fire. Walls are lined with historic photographs and Guinness memorabilia- it won’t be long till you’re craving a pint of the black stuff. We are one of those places with all the charm of an ‘old man’s pub’ but with the buzz of weekend cocktails, family Sunday lunch and coffee catch-ups. If booking a tour group with us, you’ll have the chance to sample nettle soup, the broth that saved families from starvation during the potato blight. Over the years, Friels has been used as a doctor’s surgery, a post office, a hotel and a coach house. Countless people, just like you, have stopped off on their travels over the centuries. You will enjoy a traditional Irish 2-course lunch and have fun with pouring your own Guinness! You’ll listen to the words and stories of our local poet Mick McAtamney, who spent 50 years in North America before returning home with his hand-carved stick as his only possession. Here at Friels, the welcome is as warm as the turf fire that burns in the hearth. Where the Guinness flows and tales are told, you’ll truly get a sense of belonging from every inch of our family-run business. We currently have capacity for Motorhomes & camper-vans at Friels. Amenities Electric Water Toilets Waste disposal Suitable for children Dog Friendly .

Just home from a wonderful Easter break with 2 days spent at friels bar in swatragh.. can't recommend this place enough the food was excellent and the welcome was warm and friendly.

They have spent a lot of money on the camper facilities and really deserve the support of the community. We definitely will be back
