A coastal adventure – beyond the city


Wave-lashed coves and rugged cliffs, vast Atlantic Ocean beaches and crumbling castles – it’s easy to get carried away by the coastal landscapes that surround Derry~Londonderry. After all, the city sits at the point where two of the island’s monumental coastal touring routes meet. Venture west and you’re on the Wild Atlantic Way – 2,500km of majestic ocean views and epic adventures; go east you’ll be carried away by the Causeway Coastal Route, one of the greatest drives on the planet.

For a total contrast, head inland to explore County Londonderry’s lush green valleys, rich heritage and quiet waters. This is a key destination for slow-travel experiences from paddle-boarding along the River Foyle to cycling the Foyle Valley Cycle Route along quiet country roads and traffic-free paths. Or discover the county’s literary side with a visit to Seamus Heaney HomePlace in Bellaghy, which celebrates the life and legacy of the Nobel prizewinning poet.
