County Londonderry Holiday Guide

County Londonderry, also known as County Derry, is one of the six counties of Northern Ireland, located in the north-west of the country. It borders the northern shores of Lough Neagh and is home to a number of key Northern Ireland tourist destinations.

Within County Londonderry, you can find top coastal destinations, charming urban environments, stunning scenery and exceptional wildlife. In short, it’s got the lot.

What to See in County Londonderry?

The county is home to some of the UK’s most iconic tourist destinations, chief among them the majestic Causeway Coast and Glens region, including the Giant’s Causeway. It is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is widely considered one of Europe’s most scenic driving locations.

Wind your way along the beautiful coastline, passing a patchwork of scenery and colours, through some picturesque villages and past rugged islands. Stop off and look at the unique geological rock formations at the Giant’s Causeway and continue on towards the city of Londonderry (Derry). Or you could even catch the train along the coast on the historic Coleraine to Londonderry line.

Mountain Activities in County Londonderry

Towering above the landscape is the Sperrin Mountain range, which covers a large part of the county. Explore the scenic driving routes or walk through one of the many forest and country parks, including Banagher Glen and Roe Valley.

The sparse, heather-covered highlands of the Sperrins contrast with the lush valleys, creating some of the most diverse and beautiful walking terrain in the UK. It also makes for excellent cycling, with the road network usually quiet enough to make touring a real pleasure. With a rich history and heritage, combined with incredible natural beauty, this mountain landscape is a big draw for County Londonderry.

Hitting the City in County Londonderry

Few other urban environments in Northern Ireland offer the same kind of charming and exciting city escape. Londonderry (Derry) is an old but very contemporary city, and was UK City of Culture in 2013. It’s a city that was well prepared for such an honour, having been home to writers such as Seamus Heaney and Brian Fiel, as well as musicians such as Phil Coulter and The Undertones.

Check out the unique independent shops and craft village along Shipquay Street, or take in a performance at one of the city’s many venues, including the Millennium Forum, Playhouse Theatre or Waterside Theatre. This is a city that’s buzzing with life.
