The Ponderosa Pub is located on the Glenshane Pass between Derry and Belfast. It was established around c.1900 but started its life as a little farmhouse on the Derry to Belfast road. This is the highest pub in Ireland and has to be self-sufficent due to it’s altitude. It has it’s own turf bank for fuel, it’s own water supply from a mountain spring and it’s own electricity generator. It has also be seen in numerous movies and has been mentioned in many books including ‘Harry’s Game’. It’s a great place to stop for the views alone.
