As the largest town on the Causeway Coast, Coleraine is just a few miles away from the popular seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart . Situated on the banks of the River Bann, Coleraine has an attractive pedestrian town centre with award winning floral displays. Soaked in history, charm and character, the town is now a bustling university town, offering a unique mix of old and new with first class shopping, historic buildings and several parks ideal for families.

Coleraine is home to the excavated Mountsandel site, the location of the first known human settlement in Ireland and is of great historical significance within the history of Ireland.  The site can be found on the east bank of the River Bann, upon which the town of Coleraine lies.  As a 17th century plantation town, Coleraine boasts a Walking Heritage Trail, ‘Around the Ramparts’  (available from the Visitor Information Centre in Coleraine) and also a historical touring route.
