The County Derry region
County Londonderry, a place to explore history, culture and scenic beauty, lies to the North West and makes up one of the six counties of Northern Ireland. The city of Londonderry, also referred to as Derry and most recently City of Culture 2013, is steeped in history and can be traced back to the 6th century. It lies on the west bank of the River Foyle and also sits on the border with County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland.
Along the coast you will find some of the most spectacular beaches in Europe. The naturally stunning formations of the coastline provide long stretches of golden sand and impressive sand dunes. In the deciduous forests at Banagher and Ness Wood, you will find the Burntollet River, which flows over the highest waterfalls in Northern Ireland.
There is also the cultural side to explore, with museums and the Community Art Centre programme, cruise boat tours and walking tours, or explore the greater area of County Londonderry with its beautiful green landscape and interesting towns and villages such as the popular seaside resort of Portstewart, Magherafelt and Castlerock.
In addition to the area being home to beautiful landscape, it is also home to many important historical buildings including Mussenden Temple, Castlerock and the Guild Hall, Derry.
Castlerock, a quiet seaside resort with glorious sandy beaches, lies within Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of recreational activity including walking, cycling, swimming, orienteering, angling and gliding, surfing, horse riding, bird watching.
There are scenic local walks to enjoy, whether coastal or rural, some of which include part of the Ulster Way. For Golfers, Castlerock Golf Course is a fabulous links course, set among rolling sand dunes, while the Championship Mussenden Course and the 9-hole Bann Course include what has been described as "one of the most scenic holes in Irish golf."
One of the most popular attractions hosted in the North Coast area is the NW200,
held in May each year and attracting worldwide visitors. The North West also plays host to the Milk Cup during the summer months, attracting youth football teams from around the world.
There are a number of National Trust Properties in the area both within walking distance and slightly further afield. These include: Hezlett House, a 17th century thatched house of structural interest, and a farmyard (seasonal opening applies),
Downhill Estate and Mussenden Temple, with its historic buildings, countryside and coastline walks and garden. Across the road from the estate you will find the Bishop's Wood, offering woodland walks around the lake and waterfalls.
The famous geographical phenomenon on the North Antrim Coast, the Giant's Causeway continues to be a tourist magnet and a Visitors' Centre. A bus is available onsite for less able passengers where passengers may be treated to some local folk lore.
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, a coastline walk, culminating in a walk across the rope bridge that connects the cliffs to Rock Island.
You will also find the dramatic ruins of Dunluce Castle, frequently used for fiming: and pretty villages such as Portballintrae. Ballintoy Harbour lies nestled at the bottom of cliffs, as does Port Bradden. See the unspoilt White Park Bay and visit the White Rocks.
Follow the Causeway Coastal route or check out the Causeway Coast and Glens itineraries. There is also information available on local film locations used for The Game of Thrones which include Downhill Strand, The Giant's Causeway and The Dark Hedges.
The Roe Valley Country Park, Limavady boasts Ulster's first domestic hydro-electric power station (opened in 1896). The Northern section of the park is open from the Visitor Centre to the Roe Valley Resort Hotel. All forest areas are open
Enjoy a day trip to Rathlin Island, the most northerly point of Northern Ireland by taking the ferry from Ballycastle. Tour the unspoilt environment of the island which is renowned for its wildlife and visit the RSPB Seabird Centre.
Visit the Bushmills Distillery and take a tour around the world's oldest licensed whisky distillery, where Irish Malt Whisky has been legally produced since 1608.
Entertainment for children of all ages can be found at the nearby Jet Centre at Riverside, Coleraine, at Benone Tourist Comples and the Dunluce Centre, Portrush.
Do not believe for one minute that the attractions of the Causeway Coast begin and end with the Giant's Causeway and the Bushmills Distillery. These are just the tip of the iceberg, the beginning but far from the end. Please don't simply dip your toes in the water. Immerse yourself in the area and allow time to see all that this beautiful area has to offer. Seeing is believing…..

This is a very well equipped holiday let ideally situated for exploring the North Coast. It was spotlessly clean and the owners had thoughtfully left a small welcome pack, including home made cookies … More
