Awesome Autumn Breaks

The Derry~Londonderry culture fest swings into Autumn with some truly epic events.

So, if you’re seeking a cool location for a getaway with your mates, look no further... Straight-up entertainment is the name of the game, so why not kick things off with some belly laughs at the Big Tickle Comedy Festival? Neil Delamere and gems like Nordie Shore will hit the stage during this month-long comedy event across the city – or the phenomenally spooky, five-day Banks of the Foyle Hallowe’en Carnival. Two monster fun goings-on.

It’s easy to get here and great value to stay so, get booking.
