Foyle Valley (part of NCN 92)

The first section of the Foyle Valley NCN route 92, as it leaves the historic city of Londonderry or Derry, is superb for families, being traffic free.

From the old quays on the banks of the River Foyle, close to the Tourist Information Centre in Derry, a five mile (8km) section of traffic free path runs south towards the County Donegal border. It follows the approximate line of the old railway line that followed the Foyle valley.

NCN 92, of which this section is part, runs for twenty one miles (36km) connecting Derry city to the border towns of Lifford and Strabane. It follows traffic free paths and quiet country roads and lanes crossing the River Foyle at Lifford to enter Strabane, finishing at the latter town’s Tourist Information Centre. Stop and visit some of the many attractions along the route like the Foyle Valley Railway Museum (Derry) or Gray’s Printer’s Museum (Strabane).

Newbuildings, Londonderry (part of NCN 93)

Between Londonderry and New Buildings NCN route 93 follows a traffic free riverside path along the River Foyle for much of its length. Alongside the path is the Riverwatch Aquarium and Visitor Centre.
