Flights to Coleraine
Located near the mouth of the River Bann in Londonderry, Coleraine is an affluent and friendly town, steeped in history. The nearby Mount Sandel Mesolithic site suggests the area was settled as far back as 6,000 BC. Today, Coleraine – known locally as the ‘Capital of the Causeway Coast’ – is the perfect quiet retreat, nestled in one of Ireland’s most stunning areas of countryside and with activities on hand to satisfy the whole family.
Options for Flying to Coleraine
Coleraine is one of Northern Ireland’s most well connected towns. With three airports all located nearby, you’ll certainly be able to find a convenient flight.
The closest airport is the City of Derry Airport, located 22 miles to the west of Coleraine.

Flying to Coleraine from the UK
When booking a flight to Coleraine from the UK, it’s important to know which airport to fly to. The City of Derry Airport is the closest, and serves one airline with regular flights from (and to) London Stansted, Liverpool and Glasgow International airports. Although slightly further afield, Belfast’s two major airports receive flights from over 70 destinations including many flights from the UK. With flights to Ireland from London Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and London City, or the East Midlands, Leeds-Bradford, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness, Bristol, Exeter and Southampton, Belfast may well be your best option.
Getting to Coleraine Once Your Flight Lands
No matter where you fly to, once your flight arrives, Northern Ireland’s excellent infrastructure means you will be in Coleraine in no time at all. Travelling from Belfast to Coleraine via the M6 motorway and A26 road is simple, or from Londonderry via the A37 and A2. Renting a car with Expedia could be your easiest option – particularly if you’re with the family and want a quick escape from the airport after your flight gets in. Alternatively the Goldline bus service from Belfast will you take you along the stunning coastal road, past the famous Giant’s Causeway. There are good train services in the region, too.
Once You Arrive in Coleraine
With a selection of flights to choose from, once you’re in Coleraine, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy. Stretch your legs with a gentle stroll along the River Bann, chill out on the sandy beaches in nearby Castlerock, or enjoy the views along Ireland’s ancient craggy cliffs.
You’ll marvel at the ancient medieval ruins of Dunluce Castle and the mysterious 19th century Mussenden Temple. Teetering on the cliffs, both seem to defy gravity, and are wonderfully displaced in time.
