2) The Walled City of Derry

Derry's historic city walls are wheelchair-friendly, allowing visitors to enjoy a leisurely stroll while taking in the city's rich history and cultural heritage.

Right behind the old walls you can see the new buildings that quire disrupt the old nostalgic feeling, so we recommend to focus just on the historical centre, if you go for it.

3) The Giant's Causeaway

The Giant's Causeway is an interesting place steeped in history and myth. The visitor center gives good information and then it is an easy kilometer or so walk downhill to where the causeway is.

It does offer accessible paths and ramps that allow wheelchair users to explore this iconic natural wonder (it's worth noting that its unlikely wheelchair users will be able to explore the rock formations). Additionally, the visitor center offers accessible facilities and services.

6) Crawfordsburn Country Park

Crawfordburn Country Park is a beautiful country park with forest walks and a lovely beach. It offers a wheelchair-friendly coastal path which allows visitors to enjoy the stunning beach, woodland, and waterfall within the park.

The paths are well maintained but some can be muddy especially in winter, and it can get very busy on the warmer summer days with restricted open hours, so best to get there early!
