Fly to Derry
Derry is the second-largest city in Northern Ireland and was awarded the title of UK City of Culture in 2010. The city lies on the west bank of the River Foyle and is close to the border of County Donegal.
The city is jam-packed with exciting events throughout the year, from Foodie Festivals to award winning Halloween celebrations. With quaint cafes and quirky bistros dotted around the city, Derry will have something to suit everyone’s taste buds.
Derry is also well-known for its legendary and buzzing nightlife. Situated in the centre of Waterloo Street, Electric Annie’s is one of the city’s quirkiest bars, spanning over 2 floors, with live music downstairs and a disco sports bar upstairs.
This city is also known for having one of the finest eating scenes. Visit La Sosta Restaurant on Carlisle Road for its sophisticated atmosphere and light modern Italian cuisine – one of the city’s finest. This restaurant was opened in 1995 by a husband and wife, who lived and worked in Italy.
There are plenty attractions in Derry too, from museums to historical sites. Step into Seamus Heaney HomePlace where you can explore the poet’s life and work, and even featuring an exhibition which interprets Heaney’s literature. The Siege Museum and Exhibition on Society Street is a fascinating exhibit of the history of The Siege, and plenty more.
Look beyond the city’s main attractions and you’ll find one of Derry’s hidden gems; Ness Country Park, which is home to Northern Ireland’s highest waterfall, as well as other stunning woodland and wildlife ponds and meadows. For a more adventurous afternoon, Creggan Country Park has plenty of outdoor and water sports activities, from an inflatable water assault course, to raft building and canoeing.
Delve into the rich culture of Derry; experience the views, food and fascinating history, and discover for yourself what makes this City of Culture so special.
