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. Derry is in County Londonderry. Our United Kingdom road trip website allows you to schedule your trip to Derry, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
