“In Derry-Londonderry you get a real taste of Northern Ireland, and there’s a huge recognition of thanks for visiting our city,” Ronan tells us. “We want people to feel connected, and love to share our journey as a city. So much has happened in the 30 years I have been here. It is great to welcome so many visitors here now and share our story.”
“Cosmopolitan, creative and steeped in history”, he says Derry-Londonderry has a unique combination of warmth and humor that makes it so special. Northern Ireland’s second largest city, it boasts ancient walls, cutting-edge food and a vibrant cultural scene.
“I think Londonderry is unmissable when visiting Northern Ireland,” Ronan says. “Nestled between hills and the river Foyle, it is very beautiful. A small city, with just over 200,000 people, it is easy to get around. Here you can get everything and it’s the perfect place to work as a local expert. From learning about the history of Northern Ireland, the magnificent city walls and some stunning architecture.”
Derry-Londonderry is also known for the hit TV series The Derry Girls, which Ronan says is worth a watch as it “really epitomizes the humor of the city”.
