City of Derry Airport sits on the south bank of Lough Foyle, near to the quiet village of Eglinton, seven miles from the centre of Derry in Northern Ireland. The airport handles around half a million passengers every year, mainly to destinations on the mainland UK, like London Stansted, Liverpool, Glasgow and Birmingham, as well as seasonal flights to Lanzarote, Mallorca and Alicante in Spain, plus Faro in Portugal. City of Derry Airport sits right by the A2 motorway, which travels east into Northern Ireland or west through Derry to link up with the N13 in Co. Donegal, Ireland. City of Derry Airport is ideally suited for visitors wishing to undertake some, or all, of the epic Wild Atlantic Way driving adventure that runs up and down the west coast of Ireland. The Wild Atlantic Way can begin from either end, but City of Derry Airport is the closest airport to Malin Head on the Irishowen Peninsula, the most northerly point in Ireland, at the northern end of the tour.
The City of Derry - Derry is the capital of Co. Derry, the second-largest city in Northern Ireland and the fourth-largest on the Emerald Isle. Renowned for its classical architecture, it was originally designed as a walled city centred on a section known as the Diamond, that's now home to a collection of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian structures. The city also enjoys a vibrant nightlife, with most of the pubs and bars to be found on Waterloo Street and Strand Road, where there is a strong culture of live traditional and rock music.
The Giant's Causeway - This legendary rock formation is about two hour's drive from Derry, in the north of Co. Antrim, is made up from about 40,000 basalt columns and attracts up to half a million visitors every year. Supposedly built by Irish giant Finn MacCool for a fight against Scottish giant Benandonner, this stunning natural wonder still leaves visitors awestruck, sixty million years later.
Malin Head - The most northern point in Ireland, including the headland of Banba's Crown, which is named for a famous mythical Queen, is less than sixty miles from Derry and only ten miles north of Malin village – incidentally the location of Ireland's most northern pub. Malin is also a beginning point for the amazing driving vacation, the Wild Atlantic Way.
