Strabane is situated in west county Tyrone, Northern Ireland, equidistant from the cities of Omagh, Derry and Letterkenny. It lies on the east bank of the River Foyle which acts as the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The nearest railway station is in Londonderry which offers direct links into Belfast.
With a population of around 20,000 it is also one of the most economically deprived towns in the United Kingdom. Strabane suffered extensive damage during the Troubles (1970s-1990s) with extensive bombings taking place within the town. In more recent times there has been a turn around for the area with development agencies and community organisations setting up new centres of activity.
Straddling the border of County Donegal, which has many scenic forests and glens, Strabane has lots of countryside to offer. There is also angling and fishing in the River Mourne which makes Strabane an appealing place for the outdoorsy types. Strabane has a range of flats, terraces, semi-detached and detached houses on offer at affordable prices. For larger properties and farms try the surrounding areas of Castlederg and Lifford.
