“A visit to the historical Londonderry/Derry City would be same with eating at Browns In The Town. Lunch is fabulous here. The city is easy to travel to by public transport. By bus 100m from Suntana to bus stop on main road. 40 minute bus ride to city. Or train journey is recommended by Michael Palin as one of the finest train journeys in Europe. Again short local bus journey to main train station at Coleraine. ”
