Strathfoyle is a village in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland, about 5 miles north east of Derry. It was newly built in different phases between the late 1920s and the late 1930s, with many new recent additions to the village, including Westlake, Butler's Wharf and Old Fort. In the 2001 Census it had a population of 1,581 people. It is within the Derry Urban Area and the Derry City Council area. The village has a small retail outlet , a Roman Catholic chapel, a library, youth club and a post office. The small retail unit was constructed in 2005 due to years of under-investment in the area and pressure by local community leaders to give the estate more facilities for its residents. Strathfoyle is situated directly across the River Foyle from the settlement of Culmore.
