We're glad to hear that you have decided to come to Ireland for the first time, no doubt this will be an excellent trip. If you are considering travelling towards Northern Ireland and the North West then I would recommend a visit to the Walled City of Derry-Londonderry. The city was recently announced as the runner-up of Ireland’s top Foodie Destination, proving it's growing reputation as one of the top foodie destinations in Ireland. There are often a selection of food festivals which take place in the city throughout the year also such as The Legenderry Food Festival and and Slow Food Festival. Dates for these are yet to be confirmed for 2018. The Walled City Market also takes place in the main city centre on the first Saturday of every month which may be of interest to you also.
On top of this, Derry-Londonderry is an excellent cultural location with a series of visitor attractions steeped in history. These include the likes of the 17th Century City Walls, Guildhall, World Famous Murals, St Columb’s Cathedral as well as many fascinating museums and exhibitions. The city also provides great options for tours, leisure, shopping and dining as well as excellent accommodation options should you choose to spend the night here. The city provides the perfect base for exploring Ireland as we are located on the gateway to Donegal/Wild Atlantic Way and the Causeway Coastal Route. More detailed information on what the city has to offer can be found in our official visitor guide here
