County Derry is located in Northern Ireland. County Derry (also known as Londonderry) is one of Ireland's most historic counties. Derry City, a scene of much conflict in the latter half of the 20th century, is today one of Ireland's most vibrant cities. Following the end of hostilities, the city has redeveloped much of its former character and charm.
Derry is connected to Belfast by good roads as well as a railway line with regular services. Derry Airport can be found just outside Derry City, with limited services to Britain. Belfast is not far, with its ferry port and two airports. Larne ferryport in Antrim is also only a little over an hour away. Details on getting around Derry, and of the nearest air- and seaports can be found in our Derry City and County Transport Guide.
