The city’s official tourism organisation, Visit Derry, is expecting a big surge in visitors and accommodation bookings for the LegenDerry Maritime Festival.

‘Visit Derry’ says there has been keen demand for accommodation during the festival which is taking place in the city from June 21-29.

Odhran Dunne, General Manager of ‘Visit Derry’, says: “There are peak periods of demand around weekends. However, it will be a week-long visitor experience and, with bookings trending towards shorter lead-in times, it will be a great opportunity for the tourism economy to benefit across the full week of the festival.”
