Londonderry, or Derry if you prefer, is one of the largest communities of Northern Ireland. Derry makes up one of the six counties of Northern Ireland and is located towards the North West of the country. The iconic coastline is located within the Causeway Coastline and Glens area and has been recognised for it’s stretch of railway between Coleraine and Derry.
It sits on the River Foyle and covers both banks of the river, although the brilliance of the old walled city is on the west bank. It is the only completed intact walled city on the Irish island and it’s one of the best examples of a walled city in all of Europe. From the Bishops street gate to the views you’ll receive high up on the walls, Derry is a community that never saw its fortifications breached.
The Sperrin Mountains cover a vast area of Derry and can be experienced by discovering the Sperrin’s scenic driving routes. Walk through some of the many forest parks such as Banagher Glen and Roe Valley. For an urban feel visit Derry Northern Ireland’s second largest city, home to the famous city walls and the first ever UK City of Culture in 2013.
Derry has a rich cultural history with many ancient architectures surrounding the city including; Derry City Walls, Saint Columbs Cathedral, and the town hall, The Guildhall. More recently locations on the boarder of Derry have been been used to film the popular HBO’s Game of Thrones television series and renowned Star Wars Episode VIII; visit the city to experience the movie in real life and walk in the steps of Luke Skywalker on the North West Coast, Northern Ireland.
Are You Ready For a Pleasant Surprise?
If you are exploring the city walls of Derry, then make your way toward the Magazine Gate. There you’ll find the outstanding Tower Museum, which you’ll find in a fully replicated 16th century tower house. The 5th floor offers a tremendous view for you, and then take your time making your way back down to ground level. One of the best exhibitions in the museum tracks the story of the La Trinidad Valenciera, a ship from the Spanish Armada that wrecked locally in 1588.
Many also tend to head toward St. Columb’s Cathedral when exploring the historical sites that Derry has to offer. It was built in just 5 years, beginning in 1628, and utilizes the same construction materials that went into the city walls. It’s the first post-reformation church that was built in Ireland or Britain and is the oldest building in Derry that has survived intact.
A final stop should be the People’s Gallery Murals, which is a series of 12 murals that are on the gable ends of homes along Rossville Street. Completed by the Bogside Artists, this is definitely one of the more unique artistic efforts you’ll have seen in awhile and it is well worth the effort to get there.
How About a Culinary Surprise?
One of the best surprises that Derry has to offer isn’t in the form of a historical site, but is instead one of the best dining experiences you’ll ever have. Make your way down to Brown’s Restaurant and be brave enough to step inside. The outside might cause you to hesitate, but the courage to enter will pay off with an elegant dining experience with vintage prints of the area. The menu is always changing, but one thing remains constant – an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients.
For the traditional entertainment experience, head toward Peadar O’Donnell’s after a good meal. You’ll find the music sessions here most evenings and there are even occasional weekend afternoon sessions as well. It’ll remind you of a typical Irish grocery pub, right down to the scales, and there is plenty of flair here that lends to the atmosphere as well.
If you’re ready to see what Derry has to offer, then make your way here and you’ll be treated to a most wonderful time. Just remember to leave “London” out of the equation and you’ll be embraced with welcoming arms.
