Point of Interest
“You won't be able to miss the Peace Bridge during your stay in Derry. It is a beautiful piece of engineering that joins the City side with the Waterside. Take a walk across it and into Ebrington Square where there are a few restaurants. You can keep walking and make your way to St Columbs Park. A beautiful city walk.”
