  • Derry airport

    Derry is now linked directly by a low-cost airline to a selection of other British cities and a few charters to the sunRyanair, an irish airline, fly to London Stansted twice a day - . Being a Irish Airline the place is listed as "City of Derry", on their flight schedules.Derry airport itself is only about five miles out, so a taxi (8 quid) or a...

  • Foyle Street Buscentre

    I took the Service 33 bus from Dublin's Busares to Derry's Foyle Street Buscentre. My trip was on a Thursday, and most of the seats on the bus were empty. The trip took 4 hours -- with one extended stop at Monaghan Bus Station where passengers could use the restrooms and get something to eat/drink at the station's cafeteria.On the positive side,...

  • Trains to Derry

    Unlike the Airporter Bus, getting a train to Derry in my experience was a real pain, from getting the FREE courtesy bus across Belfast City airport to the road outside, lugging your bags up and over the bridge across the motorway to Sydenham train station, from there take a quick trip to Belfast Central station, at this point wait at least an hour...

  • Airporter Bus service

    The Airporter provides the only direct coach service between the Belfast Airports and Derry in the North West.The bus ride is in my experience far more of a travel choice than the train, having done both the bus is actually quicker by about 30 minutes or so, far more pleasant a ride, easier and way less hassle, just get on, travel, get off, no...

  • Airport - Flying to Londerry/Derry

    The airport code is LDY. BMI and Ryanair are the main carriers. Not a huge amount of flights into LDY or going out, but enough to suffice. They are pushing to expand the runway to get more flights and carriers, but there are connections to and from Shannon, Dublin, Glasgow. I can not remember which, if any, of the London airports there were flights...

  • Taxis

    Taxis - The first thing you should do is save the number of a reliable and speedy taxi service into your mobile. There's quite a few! If you're staying at the hotel, ask the hotel to call one for you, and then also ask for the number of the place if you're going to be taking one back to the hotel later.Flagging a taxi off the street is not like...

  • Railway station is not exactly central !

    The Railway station, such as it is, sits on the windswept shore on the non-city side of the river.Whilst the route to town is very obvious, you just cross the bridge, it is a good 10 minute walk to the centre of town. With luggage a taxi would be useful.The facilities are very limited at the station, so it's not a place to hang around if you are...

  • Airporter service to Belfast...

    The airporter service to Belfast international is efficient, taking about 2 hours to get there. It also leaves about every 2 hours during the day, and slightly less often at the weekends.It's a bit pricy at 14 Pounds 50p (20 pounds return) but the alternative is a train to Antrim and a bus link from there. That alternative would take about 2 and a...

  • From Belfast, it's best to...

    From Belfast, it's best to catch a bus from the busstation behind the Europa Hotel, it'll drop you of in the middle of Derry City. Cost: 5 pounds.Buses go daily on a regular basis.Either walk or when late at night get a cab (not too expensive).

  • Well for me, car is best. I...

    Well for me, car is best. I live 31 miles from Derry. There's also bus and train routes there.Walking if you're just interested in the shops. Anything else, use taxi, bus, or bike.
