Life, Culture and Room to Grow

When it’s time to switch off, whether you enjoy a bustling lively nightlife or seek the escape of a deserted windswept beach, Derry City region has both the natural landscape and the wealth of culture on offer, to enchant and entertain once the working day is done. Located where the wild Atlantic way meets the Giant Causeway, our coastline takes in stunning peninsulas, secret nooks and coves, and endless golden beaches. Adventurous spirits will be inspired by scenic mountain ranges, rivers, lakes and miles of unspoilt countryside. Space also means real estate and the region offers a wide range of flexible and effective options, from state-of-the-art labs and start-up incubators, through to Science Parks and Grade A accommodation, to large scale sites for manufacturing supported by agencies and local authorities.
