The town of Limavady in the west of the Causeway Coast and Glens was founded in the early seventeenth century and its name is of Gaelic origin meaning ‘Leap of the Dog’ (Leim an Mhadaidh).

The ‘Londonderry Air’ is synonymous with the town. In 1851, Jane Ross wrote down the tune played by a travelling fiddler – you will know it as “Danny Boy.”

Today it is a thriving market town known for its unique blend of retailers, characterised by family-owned, independent retailers.

Within a short distance from the town you will find the Roe Valley Forest Park, a lush, green forest area with beautiful and tranquil scenery.  Binevenagh Mountain provides a bold, dramatic backdrop to Limavady, hence its attraction as a filming location for the Game of Thrones® series.

Just 11 miles from Limavady is Benone Strand – a Blue Flag Beach that stretches for seven miles.  It offers a perfect playground for indulging in some active sports including surfing, stand up paddleboarding, blokarting and horse-riding.
