Easy to use

This is a very easy railway to use and a beautiful trip. I didn't find much to do in Coleraine, though. It was fun to just take the train somewhere!

If it's good enough for Michael Palin, then it's good enough for me! Unfortunately the weather interfered with the views on the way to Derry but, on the way back, wow, what a load of outstanding scenery! Especially as the rain had made loads of waterfalls, too. Train is warm and punctual, so well worth the trip!

We visited Derry for the day with the kids and grandparents. The trip on the train was warm, comfortable and some really good views. The train was on time both ways offering free wifi too. The kids loved it and with a free bus ride in to the city, what's not to like.

First time ever to Derry by train. Leisure trip, most enjoyable, great views of the coast. Loved the free bus shuttle from the station to Foyle street depot and the return was equally good. there is a locker service at bus station for luggage for a nominal fee.

We missed most of the scenic views as we were moved by bus due to rail works. Just a wee scenic train journey with refurbishment works being carried out at the Waterside Station

We had read a lot about this rail journey and wondered if it could possibly be that good - well, it was even better ! Took the busy train from Coleraine, which then made its way to Derry along the beautiful coastline. We had planned to take the car, but the rail fare is great value and this journey is... More

I visited in August with my family as part of our summer holiday. The views are wonderful and it's unlike any train I've ever been on. The staff are very friendly and it's good value for money, especially when travelling with a family. I will definitely be recommending and will hopefully return again soon.

Justly praised as a journey of special scenic interest. Advice: sit one side of the carriage on outward journey, and the other side coming back. And now tyhe track is relaid it is a smooth and comfortable ride.
