En­joy fun times in Ty­rone

If you’re look­ing for a great night out, head for Omagh town cen­tre

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - TRAVEL -

Revel in the buzz of Omagh’s Main Street for an un­for­get­table night in Co Ty­rone. Take to the streets to en­joy lively en­ter­tain­ment and choose between a great se­lec­tion of ho­tels and lo­cal eater­ies. Be­gin your stay by check­ing in to Rooms at Rue, a lux­u­ri­ous four-star bou­tique ac­com­mo­da­tion lo­cated at the heart of Omagh town cen­tre.

This stylish es­tab­lish­ment opened in May last year, of­fers 13 beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated en­suite bed­rooms and is per­fectly sit­u­ated for a great night out.

You will find Rooms at Rue di­rectly above Rue restau­rant, where you can en­joy a de­li­cious meal to get your evening off to a fan­tas­tic start.

With bo­hemian-style in­te­ri­ors, the restau­rant is in­spired by the glam­our and eclec­tic at­mos­phere of New Or­leans and is renowned for its mouth-wa­ter­ing food and warm hos­pi­tal­ity.

Their ex­ten­sive menu of­fers tra­di­tional favourites with a twist and there is some­thing to suit all tastes, with many gluten-free and vege­tar­ian dishes avail­able.

Now that your ap­petite is sated with de­li­cious food, plan your next move and choose between a lively tra­di­tional theme or the quin­tes­sen­tial night­club ex­pe­ri­ence — Omagh’s Main Street has it all.

From Rue, head next door to Sean Og’s rus­tic, thatched cot­tage pub, which sits amidst the hus­tle and bus­tle of Main Street. Step back in time and re­lax by the blaz­ing turf fire with a spe­cial­ity whiskey or pint.

Sean Og’s also has live tra­di­tional mu­sic ses­sions ev­ery week­end, so you can ease your­self into your night on the town with some toe-tap­ping in this cosy time ma­chine.

Carry on to the nearby Ostlers Arms, nes­tled in the cor­ner of Main Street square, which of­fers a sim­i­lar vibe, with a buoy­ant at­mos­phere epit­o­mis­ing good times. Here you can have a cold drink while en­joy­ing more live mu­sic and great craic.

Don’t miss out by stay­ing in­doors, though. Head out of the pub be­cause more en­ter­tain­ment is on of­fer at the fa­mous out­door Main Street Stage — a unique ex­pe­ri­ence as the at­mos­phere of the nearby bars spills out on to the streets. En­joy the best of lo­cal tal­ent in the so­cial heart of Omagh.

If club­bing is more your thing, head to Man­tis for a late night of high-en­ergy fun. The lux­u­ri­ous decor evokes an air of so­phis­ti­ca­tion and you can dance the night away to the lat­est beats.

On nights at the week­end, you can book one of their Very Spe­cial Ar­eas to avoid queues at the bar and fully en­joy your night of in­dul­gence.

You’ll be happy to know that after truly let­ting your hair down, you can kick off your danc­ing shoes and sink into your cosy bed at Rooms at Rue, just two min­utes away from the vi­brant streets be­low.

Give your feet a break and sleep soundly be­fore re­fu­elling with a freshly cooked break­fast in the morn­ing.

After a night of en­ter­tain­ment, catch some last-minute cul­ture at one of the nearby at­trac­tions such as the Ul­ster Amer­i­can Folk Park.

Re­turn home re­ju­ve­nated and ea­ger to visit again.
