Portadown Holiday Homes Armagh
Portadown is a town situated on the River Bann, in the north of County Armagh. Although the town can trace its origins to at least the 1600s, it was not until the Victorian era and the arrival of the railway that it became a major town. Portadown is known as “The Hub of the North”, the origin of this phrase coming from its central position in Northern Ireland and being a major railway junction in the past, where the Great Northern Railway’s line diverged for Belfast, Dublin, Armagh and Derry.
Portadown boasts of a thriving mix of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to tickle all taste buds. There are three modern shopping centres – High Street Mall, Magowan West and the Meadows which combine perfectly with the typical market town High Street shops.
Within a radius of seven miles, the people of Portadown enjoy some of the highest quality leisure and recreational facilities in Northern Ireland. Virtually every indoor and outdoor sporting activity is catered for. The natural assets of Lough Neagh and the River Bann, and Portadown’s location in the heart of the apple blossom county of Armagh, provide an environment of beauty and rural tranquillity to augment the thriving urban life of Portadown.
