Visiting the City

Visiting the City

With its rich and colourful history and with the Donegal countryside and Giants Causeway nearby, Derry boasts a charismatic location and is a natural hub for anyone wishing to visit the Northwest of Ireland.

Compact within its 17th century city walls, easy to get around on foot and with a range of comfortable accommodation for visitors, Derry is also a vibrantly alive contemporary centre. In 2013 Derry-Londonderry hosted the first UK City of Culture, with many high profile events of international calibre taking place year round including the landmark contemporary art exhibit, the Turner Prize, which launched in Derry during the choral festival!
