About Coleraine and Portstewart

Coleraine is a large town and civil parish near the mouth of the River Bann in County Londonderry. It is 55 miles northwest of Belfast and 30 miles east of Derry, both of which are linked by major roads and railway connections. The North Coast (Coleraine and Limavady) area has the highest property prices in Northern Ireland, higher even than those of affluent South Belfast. Championship golf courses, scenic countryside and a host of leisure facilities and attractions are all on the doorstep. It has an attractive town centre, and a marina. Coleraine during the day is a busy town, however at night the town is relatively quiet, with much of the nightlife in the area located in the nearby seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart.

Portstewart is a seaside resort neighbouring Coleraine. Its harbour and scenic coastal paths form a long, crescent-shaped seafront promenade leading to 2 miles of golden strand sheltered by rocky headlands. It is probably best known for this sandy beach, popular with surfers. It is a reasonably prosperous town. Most of the town is contained in the Strand electoral ward and this is one of the most affluent areas in Northern Ireland. It is also one of the most integrated towns in Northern Ireland with the religious demographics similar to the population of Northern Ireland as a whole. Community relations are generally good within the town. Dominican College, for example, is a Catholic grammar school with a significant proportion of Protestant students and staff.
