County Londonderry travel guide

4.4
Historic Walking Areas · History Museums · Bridges
County Londonderry features numerous scenic riverside settings and several important historical sites. Derry, the county’s biggest city, famous for its ancient defensive walls, served as the UK’s official City of Culture in 2013. The county, steeped in history and proud of its Irish heritage, plays an important role in the cultural revival currently underway in this northern region. Though there’s lots of history to soak up here, the county’s biggest attraction may very well be the locals themselves, well known for their long tradition of witty storytelling. Visit the county’s smaller villages to explore a flourishing music scene, which has found its home in both traditional pubs and trendy new cafes.

Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.
