About Greencastle

There's no denying that Londonderry has seen its fair share of conflict dating back to the 17th century when walls were built to fortify the city. They still stand today having withstood numerous attacks, including the Great Siege of 1689 by King James. The layout of the city remains relatively unchanged since the 17th century.

You'll find a historic centre with the gothic St. Columb Cathedral at its heart. The four main streets radiate out from the 'Diamond' and lead to the four gateways; Bishop's Gate, Ferryquay Gate, Shipquay Gate and Butcher's Gate. From the quay behind the Guildhall hundreds of thousands of Irish emigrants sailed for a new life in the New World.

Located just outside the walls is the attractive Town Hall or, if you want beautiful scenery, then the nearby Sperrin Mountains will provide a refreshingly energetic stroll. Alternatively, head for the famous Giant's Causeway, built, as the story goes, by 52 foot Finn MacCool to enable neighbouring giant Benandonner to cross the sea of Moyle and compete in a show of strength.
