first_imgAll aboard the bus for Malin!Inishowen is set to see its first ever tourist bus route from Derry to Malin Head, Ireland’s most northerly point ‘Banba’a Crown’.Inishowen Rural Transport and Inishowen Tourism have come together to develop a tourist bus trail to Malin Head, daily (Monday – Friday) throughout the month June, which will connect directly in Carndonagh to the North West Busways bus arriving from Derry.This is a pilot scheme being rolled out as a way of integrating Derry & Inishowen as Derry reigns as the UK’s Cultural City in 2013. This route takes in the coastal views of Fiver Fingers Strand, Knockamany Bends and a visit Banba’s Crown where there will be a dwell time of approximately 1.5 hours to allow the visitor to experience Ireland’s Most Northerly Point and surrounding area.This initiative was developed as part of the efforts being made by Inishowen Tourism’s City of Culture Liaison Officer, Jennifer O’ Donnell to interlink Inishowen with Derry ~Doire as they celebrate a spectacular year as UK City of Culture. ‘“Derry is expecting upwards of 1 million visitors to the City this year and it is vital Inishowen is best placed to take advantage of this. This bus route offers the cultural visitor to Derry a fantastic opportunity to experience a bit of Inishowen and explore the tip of Ireland,” said Ms O’Donnell.Inishowen Rural Transport, coordinator, Cormac Skinnader says ‘ the aim of Inishowen Rural transport is to enable people both inside and outside the peninsula to make connections, people to people and people to places. This is an ideal opportunity to work with Inishowen Tourism in the promotion of the Peninsula’. This Bus service will depart Patrick Street Derry daily throughout June at 8.55am and will arrive back in Derry at 1.25pm. THE NEXT BUS TO MALIN HEAD IS LEAVING SOON! was last modified: April 17th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Banba’s CrownbusDerrylast_img read more
