On the Inis Eoghain Cycleway cyclists pass along the Foyle Valley and continue under the spectacular Foyle Bridge before heading through Ballyarnett Country Park. Once at the city limits, the route begins to climb to An Grianan Aileach with magnificent views over Lough Swilly, Inch Island, the Inish Eoghain peninsula and south towards the Sperrin Mountains. From here the route falls away through quiet country roads to the shores of Lough Swilly and the bustling town of Newtowncunningham in County Donegal. They Cycleway then returns via undulating countryside to the River Foyle after passing through Carrigans, where a one way system avoids a bad bend on a busy road for cyclists travelling in an anticlockwise direction. From Carrigans the route follows the traffic free Foyle Valley Greenway alongside the river back to the heart of Derry in County Londonderry.
The Inis Eoghain Cycleway is a 55km loop connecting the River Foyle in County Londonderry to Lough Swilly in County Donegal. The route is full of beautiful scenery which one can take in at a leisurely pace.
