Free Travel guide Ooaj.com A free travel guide for holidays. Hotels in derry, Bed and Breakfast!
The citycentre, including the city walls and the Bogside, is small and suitable for walking.
A trip to Giant's Causeway on the north coast is highly recommended. If you have a choice, come early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid crowds of tourists trodding all over the place. Translink (http://www.translink.co.uk) operate buses to and from the Giant's Causeway from both Derry and Belfast.
Walk around Derry on top of the city walls. If open, step into St Augustine's Church on the west side of the city walls, and have a friendly chat with the hosts. If you show a decent amount of respect, you may end up getting a more balanced view of how The Troubles was for people living in Derry.
Take a walk around the Free Derry corner between the Bogside and the western side of the old city walls. Stop and look at the political murals made by local artists during the 90's, depicting key events in the harsh conflict haunting Northern Ireland. In the same area, the Free Derry monument and Bloody Sunday memorial are also located.
Peadar O'Donnell's, 63 Waterloo St, phone +44 (0) 28 7137 2318. If you are looking for traditional irish folk music sessions, this is the best place in Derry. Such sessions are held nearly every day of the week, and both locals and visitors create a nice atmosphere.
The Merchans house, 16 Queen street, phone +44 (0) 28 71269691/71264223. A wonderful old house with Bed and Breakfast. Nice and clean, good breakfast. No en suite bathroom because it would be a pity to change the house.
Derry Backpackers, 4 Asylum Road, phone +44 (0)28 71284100, email email@example.com (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org). A friendly, independent hostel, run by two backpackers who have been traveling around the world for quite some time themselves. The hostel actually consists of three separate houses, all spread out within walking distance of the old town and the Bogside murals.
The city itself is quite small, making it easily to escape to the surrounding countryside. The county of Londonderry and nearly Donegal have a wealth of green fields and sights to appeal to nature lovers. Ulsterbuses can be used for outings.
