A walk around the walls of Derry~Londonderry reveals a splendid city crammed full of history, heritage, interest and a vibrant cultural scene. This is the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland and one of the finest examples of Walled Cities in Europe. The Walls were built during the period 1613-1618 by the honourable, The Irish Society as defences for early seventeenth century settlers from England and Scotland.
Walking the cliff path at The Gobbins will be an exhilarating adventure that will excite all the senses. While The Gobbins is a spectacular new adventure it has also re-awakened a coastal experience, which was first enjoyed in 1902 by the Edwardians. The modern cliff path at The Gobbins is an unexpected white-knuckle walk which will thrill those with a sense of adventure and delight those who wish to experience the coast up close.
Why not include a Blue Flag beach on your visit to Northern Ireland? In 2016 there were ten Blue Flag beaches in Northern Ireland. Spend a lazy day on the beach or, with the many Surf Schools on the North Coast, why not take a surfing lesson on the beautiful North Coast?
Rugged coast, spectacular views over the Mull of Kintyre, crashing waves and historical intrigue are reasons to take a trip to Torr Head. This headland was important in the 1800s for recording the passage of transatlantic ships, relaying the information back to Lloyds of London. It was often the last hope for Scottish clans beckoning aid from allies in Argyllshire. The walls and ruins of Altagore cashel date back to the sixth century. Long before the early Christian Church and Irish clans came here, the headland was already remarkable. Torr Head is an excellent example of metamorphosed limestone, indicative of volcanic rock sequences in Ireland and Scotland.
