I stayed in Dungiven about 3 weeks ago and decided to accomodate myself with this area. The castle seemed like a lovely place to stay althought it did disapoint, but thats for another review! ...I was traveling solo on a business deal and was only in town for the weekend, however one night after i had finished my meal in the castle i decided to venture down the 'town' as the people within the hotel called it. After walking what seemed like a minute down the road, i set my eyes on this great bar which looked so inviting even from the outside which says alot!! The layout inside the pub was very comfortable and the staff behind the bar made me feel right and home. I sat at the bar and had a pint 'of the black stuff' whilest having a lovely chat with the bar tenders, who might i add where a pleasure to interact with, so warm and easy to talk to. It's traditional style made it even nicer, like no other pub iv'e seen. I reccomend McReynolds to anyone visiting Dungiven, it was a pity they never did accomodation as i would have gladly stayed there!

We went into the centre and read all about the area and gathered the history and many interesting facts about the park also used the loo whilst there. This time we had brought our own picnic so we did not use the very good restaurant in the Centre. We walked the easy walk and bit of the medium walk. The whole walk was filled with interesting things to look at, people to chat to, animals and birds to spot and identify and sights to photograph. This time we did not visit the mill although we have in the past. After the walk we returned to the car park and using one of the many picnic tables had our lunch. All in all a very enjoyable visit.

Easy walk among trees and flowers.Ii took me about an hour to get to the dam.There is two parking places near the start of the trial.One before the other.When you walk you stay on the left when there is a choice.May be all the trials bring to the dam.There were a lot of woman making this trial which is mostly on a little street like the normal street for the car.Sorry for my english.

It's a little hard to find, no real car park and down a track, but well worth the effort . There is a serene beauty here in the ruins and graveyard, and it's so peaceful & tranquil. Not a day trip but if you are on the scenic drive like we were it is well worth the time to visit.

The entrance to this church is on a bend on a very narrow road and has no parking so you may have to park elsewhere and walk. We backed into the entrance but you need someone to guide you out. It is a lovely lititle church in a great setting. The mortuary house was built with a little hand hole in the wall to give people direct access to the relics inside, fascinating in itself.

Set within the Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre, Limavady Visitor Information Centre is a great hub for information on the local area, and the whole Causeway Coast & Glens Region. With regular Exhibitions, shows, theatre productions, activities for children and lovely Seating areas inside and out, it is an enjoyable place to visit and spend some time. Free brochures, maps and information available. Accommodation booking is also available.
I visited here during my time in Limavady because I was told that there was a museum here as well in the cultural and hertiage centre. I was informed that it was more temporary historic Exhibitions and at the time more art Exhibitions. I didn't have time to go to view those. However there's a great area in the tourist information centre telling you about places to visit and where they are i.e ancient monuments, churchs and Castles and also the industrial heritage too. I will be back again whenever I get back to Limavady to see more. The staff were friendly and very helpful with all the information about the area and were able to help me find out more about the history of the local area.

This is located off the main Belfast - Derry road (A6) just as you come into the town from Belfast - off to the left SP Bleach Green/Dungiven Castle Park.
