The city of Derry is a former City of Culture, and rightly so. This historic walled city has seen it’s fair share of turbulent times. But in recent years, it has become the hip and happening city of Northern Ireland. Art, architecture, rich heritage and a lively buzz of department stores, boutiques, galleries, cafes and restaurants,  all contribute to the modern cosmoplitian feel. Also located a very short drive  from the start of the designated  Wild Atlantic Way, which begins in Muff, Co.Donegal, just a few miles from Derry city centre.  This is a journey down the west coast of Ireland, which follows the Atlantic Ocean coastline, for over 2000km, until it reaches its end in Kinsale, West Cork. Derry is the perfect place to start that journey, taking in the lively action of the city before hitting some dramatic and breathtaking scenery in this part of the world.  No finer place to rest your head before you start your city and coastal sightseeing than the Everglades Hotel.  Just  couple of miles outside Derry, in a quiet surburban area, so peace and relaxation is at the optimum! As a Hastings Hotel,  Everglades carries all the quality hallmarks of the group. Comfort at every turn. Introduce your self to the Everglades this St. Patrick’s Day, with some great special offers for B&B and Dinner B&B for March 17th. Hotel guests and the public can also enjoy a bowl of Traditional Irish Stew served with a pint of Irish craft beer or a glass of wine, at just £8.00,  served in the hotel loung on 17th March – a winning combo created specially for the day that’s in it!
