Derry

Maiden City

Ancient yet modern, Derry has a photogenic location on the River Foyle and features a series of historic defensive walls that are the most complete in Ireland. Derry is the second-largest city in Northern Ireland and one of the oldest inhabited places on the whole island. As the locals are fond of saying, "Derry was a city when Belfast was still a swamp." There’s no shortage of history in and around this city, though with a huge population of 20- to 30-year-olds, Derry also caters to younger vacationers. The city is dotted with a wealth of bars, nightclubs, and pubs, where the folk music scene is well established.

Where to stay in Derry

Derry, or Londonderry, town center is a lively place to stay. Although the town itself suffered during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the center stayed safe and has thrived. Consider an inn in the town center, perhaps a building painted with one of the well-known murals. less expensive hotels are available just outside the town's central area, close enough to the main attractions for convenient access.
