You can travel by train from Castlerock to Londonderry and see some wonderful scenery in comfort. While in the city of Londonderry you can view the historic city walls which were built in 1619, with the original cannon. You can also enjoy shopping in the many retail outlets the city has to offer or take a cruise on the River Foyle. 20km from the apartment is the town of Limavady, which is most famous for 'The Londonderry Air'. Roe Valley Country Park is a lovely place for walks beside the river and has one of the best Salmon rivers in Europe. 8km from the apartment is Ulster's only gliding club which offers the ultimate flying experience to both members and vistors.
