Things to do in Derry

If it’s ghouls, ghosts and goblins you’re after, then a Derry Halloween is the perfect Halloween experience. Derry was voted ‘Best Halloween destination in the world’ by American newspaper USA Today and the entire town goes Halloween-crazy for an entire week leading up to the big day itself.

Derry is the only fully walled city in the whole of the island of Ireland and the walls are an integral part of the town centre

But there are plenty of great reasons to visit Derry anytime in the other 364 days of the year and you can fit a lot into just 48 hours in Derry: its beautiful location for one: perched on the banks of the River Foyle and just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic ocean and some stunning beaches.
