While Limavady itself is not a typical destination, it is ideally positioned for many of the gems in this corner of Northern Ireland, with the Causeway Coast, seaside resorts like Portrush and Portstewart, the golden beach at Benone Strand, Derry city, and the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal all within easy reach, plus the Sperrin Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are plenty of camping options, especially along the northern coast and toward Portstewart.

Where to Go

Portrush and Portstewart

These seaside resort towns offer a holiday feel in summer and all the trappings, from ice-cream shops to amusement parks. Walk the golden stands, explore the dunes, or take to the waves (there are a number of surf schools and watersports centres), or check out the links courses at Royal Portrush Golf Club. Drive the coast on your way to or from Limavady to take in the 10-kilometre-long beach at Benone Strand—there are plenty of camping options all along the coast.


Set on the River Foyle, the city of Derry (or Londonderry) and its 1.5-km-long walls are some of the best preserved in Europe—take a tour to learn about the bastions, gateways, and ramparts. The impressive S. Columb’s Cathedral dates back to 1633 and is full of stories, but campers can also head outside the city for coastal or countryside camping..

Causeway Coastal Route

The Causeway Coastal Route is considered one of the world’s most scenic drives, running to the unique rock formations at the Giant’s Causeway, the cliff-top ruins of Dunluce Castle, and theCarrick-a-Rede rope bridge, where you can test your wits. The nine glens of Antrim start from Ballycastle, with forest parks, rivers, and waterfalls, plus heritage villages like Cushendall and Cushendun on the coastal side. Game of Thrones fans can visit filming sites and stop at scenic holiday parks all along the way.

Inishowen, Donegal

From Magilligan Point, hop on a ferry across Lough Foyle to Greencastle and explore Donegal’s Inishowen Peninsula with a looped drive back around to Limavady via Derry city. Start at Greencastle’s Inishowen Maritime Museum and Planetarium at the harbour, then take in Inishowen’s beaches and Ireland’s most northerly point, Malin Head.

When to Go

The best weather is usually from May to September, but of course, these months also draw crowds and tour buses to the seaside towns and Giant’s Causeway. Campsites can get busy, so advance planning is recommended. Weather in this region can change at short notice, so always be prepared for rain, wind, and cooler temperature.

Know Before You Go

  • Many area campsites are seasonal, so check dates in advance. 
  • Campsites can get busy, so many require advance bookings and full payment for weekends, bank holidays, and all of July and August. Dates of local festivals and the week of 12 July are also busy.
