Ideal if you are coming up from Belfast and travelling to north Donegal and lets you avoid having to drive up through the city, You can however also get quickly into the Foyleside area of Derry . However if you don't like heights either close...More

Coming up from Belfast the Foyle Bridge is the obvious way to access the roads towards Donegal without having to go over the Craigavon Bridge and through the city centre. A little care is needed to traverse the roundabouts leading to the bridge but this...More

An opposing piece of design and some outstanding views as you go to and fro and one of the main routes to the City
