Seabourn Ovation at Greencastle (c) Foyle Port


Foyle Port is located in the North West of Ireland, 7 miles from the city of Derry-Londonderry. The Port has a number of berthing options available to facilitate vessels of varying size including the tender Port of Greencastle in Co. Donegal, Fort George berth located in the heart of the city, as well as the Port terminal at Lisahally.

Foyle Port is the ideal location for exploring Derry or iconic coastlines of the Wild Atlantic Way and Causeway Coastal Route. Derry, Ireland’s only completely intact walled city, is an exciting destination bursting with history and culture. Discover the 17th century City Walls, stunning architecture and award-winning museums.

Within a 1 hour drive is Royal Portrush Golf Club, host of the British Open 2025, a must for golfing cruises. With spectacular coastlines the northwest coast is highly regarded; Lonely Planet named the Inishowen Peninsula the ultimate place for a road trip and the Causeway coast the number one region in the world for travellers!
