There are many reasons why visitors to this handsome corner of Northern Ireland book Derry car hire. As well as seeing the city with ease, if you drive you can reach the emerald-green landscapes and cliff-backed beaches of the nearby coast.

Don’t go anywhere yet, though – Derry is one of the most culturally rich cities in Northern Ireland...

Derry, also known as Londonderry, is positively bursting with culture and history and there are a few key places which must be seen when on holiday here. Surrounded by walls built in the 17th century, Derry is the only walled city left in Ireland. Places such as the Museum of Free Derry, opened in 2007, and the Guildhall, with its stunning stained-glass artwork, are just some of the fascinating attractions in this part of Northern Ireland.

For those interested in history, the Tower Museum is a must-see. Opened in 1992, it has won both the British and Irish Museum of the Year awards. St Columb's Cathedral is an impressive building in a Gothic style.

Anyone with a love of art will be intrigued by the Bogside Murals in Derry, which depict political events from Northern Ireland’s often fraught history.

Travellers around Northern Ireland often like to use car hire in Derry, too, as it allows them to see the sights of the city at their own pace. The City of Derry Airport (LDY) is located just outside the city centre, so visitors can easily rent a car from the airport and make their way to their accommodation. Alternatively, tourists can collect hire cars at one of the convenient locations in the downtown areas of Derry. Book car hire in advance to save money and to select the most suitable pick-up and drop-off points for your travel plans.
