Seated almost on the edge of the Irish Sea, just minutes away from the Derry Airport, is the charming and lush village of Eglinton, in the county of Londonderry. Originally known as Muff after the coursing river that flows through the village, Eglinton is the perfect spot for the employees of Derry to raise a family. This city also plays home to the cosy and inviting Manor House Eglinton, a bed and breakfast surrounded by bountiful gardens. Coolafinny Road is the main thoroughfare into the town, and features the local market and a few shops.
- Pack a picnic and journey to the fields near the Old School House, where visitors can appreciate the simple beauty of the many cottages and homes surrounding the park.
- Reserve a room at the Manor House Eglinton to enjoy modern amenities like TV and WiFi, while relaxing in a historic Londonderry home built in 1850; travellers should also enjoy the complimentary homemade Irish breakfast.
- Attracting many visitors every year, the Eglinton Annual Show in September is an exciting event, during which Londonderry residents display their goods and crafts.
Located just about two kilometres from the Derry Airport, Eglinton is very close and easy to reach, even by foot. Taxis line up outside the airport for easy and inexpensive access to the village, as well as nearby attractions or hotels. Rental cars are also a popular option, as most people in the area use private vehicles for transportation. Within Eglinton, everywhere is within walking distance, and the Manor House Eglinton is located close to Coolafinny Road, the main drag. Bus service is very infrequent and somewhat unreliable, so visitors should stick to driving or walking.
