The County Derry region
County Londonderry makes up one of the six counties of Northern Ireland. It is located towards the northwest of the province and lies on the west bank of the River Foyle. It also sits on the border with County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. It is home to beautiful landscape and important historical buildings including the famous City Walls of Derry and the Mussenden Temple.
County Derry, officially know as Londonderry, is perched on the northwest coast of Northern Ireland. Covering an area of some 798 square miles, the Derry landscape is varied and breathtaking. To the south are the forested glens of the Sperrin Mountains while to the north and east is the spectacular coastline of Benone Strand, Ireland's longest beach, 7 miles of wide-open sand and surf.
Derived from the Irish 'Doire' meaning oak grove, Derry has long been a sacred place for early Celtic and Christian settlements. In the 6th century, the Irish Saint Columba founded a monastery beside the River Foyle in 546 AD, where the oak tress grew. The City walls of Londonderry/Derry are amongst the best preserved fortifications in Europe. The layout of the city reflects the original town plan set out several hundred years ago. In 1609, an agreement was made with the Corporation of London for the rebuilding of Derry, hence the introduction of the name Londonderry.
Meander through the bustling streets of the only completely Walled City in Ireland and the British Isles and listen to the echoes of 1450 years of history. Stroll along its 17th century walls this year celebrating their 400th anniversary, and marvel at the ever-changing skyline of a city which is constant only in the warmth of its welcome. Stroll across the gleaming new Peace Bridge which curves majestically across the River Foyle leading to the spectacular new development at Ebrington.
Derry has some fine architecture across the County including the Georgian town of Limavady and the folly overlooking Downhill Strand, Mussenden Temple, built by the eccentric Earl Bishop of Derry. Other cultural attractions include Bellaghy Bawn, a 17th century enclosure, containing a permanent exhibition on the locally born, Nobel laureate poet, Seamus Heaney. The Earhart Centre at Ballyarnet commemorates where Amelia Earhart (the first woman to fly the Atlantic solo) brought her plane down in 1932. The first recording of 'Londonderry Air' was by Jane Ross in 1851, which was later affectionately known as 'Danny Boy'.
Visitors to Londonderry/ Derry can also enjoy a multitude of outdoor activities from first-class golf to hill walking and excellent river angling. Roe Valley Country Park near Limavady is a superb place for salmon and trout fishing, canoeing, rock climbing and walking through miles of magnificent, preserved woodlands
Portstewart is a beautiful seaside town located on Northern Ireland's stunning North Coast. It has a picturesque harbour and promenade and to the west of the town stretches Portstewart Strand, a clean two mile long blue flag beach, protected by the National Trust.
Portstewart Strand has been the most popular attraction of Portstewart to holiday-makers for generations. Saint Patrick's well is to be found at the head of the strand, which was used in the 19th century and early 20th century for horse racing. The beach finishes at the Barmouth of the River Bann overlooking Castlerock.
Portstewart is an attractive town for shopping and eating out and has a flourishing arts and cultural scene with the well established and very active Arts Centre, Flowerfield (just a 5 minute walk from Tranquility) leading the way along with several art galleries and shops situated along the Promenade. Famous for it's ice cream, visitors can sample a variety of home-made flavours at a number of ice-cream parlours, the famous 'Morelli's Ice Cream' among them.
A prominent feature of the town is O'Hara's Rock Castle, built in 1834 and later converted into a school, still in use today as part of Dominican Convent School. Beneath this building begins a magnificent cliff walk leading to Portstewart Strand and along the way is a holy well from which St Patrick is reputed to have drunk (Tober Patrick). From here it is a popular walk to the Barmouth, where the Bann flows out into the Atlantic Ocean. The cliff path has panoramic views across the Strand and Downhill with Donegal in the background. The Barmouth is a sanctuary for waders, wildfowl and nesting birds. Beyond the Barmouth lies Castlerock, Mussenden Temple, Benone Strand and the Magilligan Strand.
At the crescent youngsters and families can enjoy a superb play pool and outdoor entertainment complex, complete with bandstand and tiered seating. Idyllic artificial lakes have motorised 'bumper' boats for hire, while active kids can expend their energies on climbing frames, slides and see-saws. Other recreational facilities include bowls, tennis and football at The Warren and there is a 9-hole and two excellent 18-hole golf courses.
The Causeway Coast Way, one of a series of eight Waymarked Ways throughout Northern Ireland, is an exhilarating walking route following the dramatic north Ulster coastline from Portstewart to Ballycastle. The 52km waymarked route incorporates the Port Path (Portstewart Strand to Whiterocks, Portrush) and the Causeway Coast footpath. The route passes along sandy beaches, rocky bays, high cliffs, seaside resorts and small fishing villages, offering a great variety of coastal scenery within the designated Causeway Coast and Glens Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
To the east of Portstewart is a popular walking/cycling path along the coast to Portrush, leading to the Giants Causeway (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Old Bushmills Distillery (the oldest licensed distillery in the world).The North Antrim Coast Path which forms part of the Ulster Way starts at Portstewart Strand and continues for 40 miles along the coast to Murlough Bay.

"A lovely retreat at The North Coast!"
Tranquility bungalow was perfect for our needs as a family with two young children. It was very roomy, comfortable and well-equipped- even supplying toys and books for the kids. The laundry facilities were also much appreciated!It is located near a large supermarket and just along the road from a play park so very suitable for us. The kids loved having a room each but it could have comfortably accommodated another two. A real home from home!

"Very welcoming, child-friendly home. Perfect for family beach holiday."
A lovely house to stay in, felt as if we were welcomed into someones home and not just a house to rent. It's the little touches like ornaments and picture frames that give it a charm, and the children especially liked the towels with blue dolphins for the boys and yellow ducks for the girl!
The kitchen has everything you could need and the washer/dryer is very useful for getting beach clothes washed and dried ready for the next morning. Fantastic amount of books, toys and videos for the children and plenty of space to run about outside in a completely enclosed garden.
There is a playground and Tesco store within walking distance and the Strand beach is only 5-10 minutes drive away so location is perfect for a holiday with children. We really enjoyed our stay here, so much so that on the drive home our 4 year old asked if we could come back next week!

"Tranquility - an idyllic home from home & a fabulous base for the North Coast."
My husband, young son and I have stayed in Tranquility on two occasions now. It is a smashing holiday bungalow both in terms of facilities and location. The facilities are superb and everything has been thought of from every utensil you could need in the kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine etc etc to board games & toys for young children. The back garden can be accessed from french doors out of the kitchen and is enclosed - great for kicking a football round to sitting in the sun (not to mention a well pegged washing line which no matter how much you try to avoid is inevitably necessary). My husband was particularly delighted with the excellent WiFi & internet access.
In terms of location, a smashing play park is within easy walking distance along with a Tescos. Portstewart is the nearest town which is great, particularly on a sunny day for the kids with the outdoor water springs & park but it is simply minutes to drive to get to so many both outdoor and indoor activities, restaurants etc.. The lady who owns the property takes a lot of time and care to maintain her holiday home and is delightful to contact (and flexible) which adds to the feeling that this is not simply a business but a warm family experience. No matter what the weather, a week in Tranquility will leave you relaxed & wishing you owned a home in the North Coast - I could not recommend it highly enough as an idyllic home from home and base for a fantastic family holiday.

"Home from home experience - lovely property & a great stay for the family"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and as a result we have gone back. My 2 boys enjoy the bunk beds and the rooms are really clean and modern. It is in an excellent location - near to both Coleraine & Portstewart. Nice and quiet neighbourhood. All amenities at hand & it felt like home from home.
