Car Hire  Derry Airport (LDY) Helpful Information

When you're collecting a hire car from City of Derry Airport (LDY), here's a guide to help you navigate to major destinations and some things to watch out for:

Routes from City of Derry Airport:

  1. To Derry/Londonderry City:

    • Take the A2 from the airport, which leads directly into the city.
    • Distance: Approximately 7 miles (around 11 km) and it typically takes about 15-20 minutes depending on traffic.
  2. To Belfast:

    • From the airport, join the A2, and then the A514 to the A6.
    • Follow the A6 eastwards towards Dungiven and then continue on this road which will take you to Belfast.
    • Distance: Approximately 70 miles (around 113 km), and the journey usually takes about 1 hour 30 minutes.
  3. To Letterkenny (Republic of Ireland):

    • Start on the A2 from the airport and then switch to the N13 once you cross the border into the Republic of Ireland.
    • Distance: Roughly 23 miles (around 37 km), taking about 40 minutes.
    • Note: Ensure your car hire insurance covers cross-border travel before heading to the Republic of Ireland.
  4. To Coleraine:

    • Head onto the A2 from the airport, which leads northward directly to Coleraine.
    • Distance: Approximately 30 miles (around 48 km), taking about 45 minutes to an hour.

Tolls:

  • There are no toll roads in Northern Ireland, so you won't encounter any tolls when driving from City of Derry Airport to other locations within Northern Ireland.

  • If you venture into the Republic of Ireland, be aware that there are some toll roads, particularly around Dublin. However, the routes mentioned above to Letterkenny do not have tolls.

Things to Look Out For:

  1. Speed Limits: Remember to always observe the speed limits. They are usually 30 mph in built-up areas, 60 mph on main roads outside towns, and 70 mph on dual carriageways and motorways.

  2. Driving on the Left: As in the rest of the UK, drive on the left side of the road.

  3. Border Crossing: If you're heading to the Republic of Ireland (e.g., Letterkenny), ensure you have the necessary insurance and documentation for cross-border travel. There are no hard border checks between Northern Ireland and the Republic, but it's essential to be prepared.

  4. Weather: The weather can be unpredictable, with rain quite common. Ensure your vehicle's lights and wipers are in good working order and adjust your driving to the conditions.

  5. Roundabouts: Be familiar with navigating roundabouts, giving way to traffic coming from the right.

Safe travels! And enjoy your time exploring Derry and its beautiful surroundings!
