About

Ebrington is a 29 acre former military heritage site located on the Foyle riverfront, connected to Derry-Londonderry City Centre across the Peace Bridge.

The site was originally occupied by Jacobite Forces during the Siege of Derry and subsequently developed as a 10 acre ‘Star Fort’ in 1841. It played a significant role in both World Wars and was pivotal during the Battle of the Atlantic. It is surrounded by a scheduled monument Star Fort Wall, akin to the Walls across the City, and contains many 19th Century Listed and Retained Buildings that in recent times housed and trained submariners during the Cold War, when it was known as H.M.S. Sea Eagle.

Ebrington was gifted to The Executive in 2003 and has been regenerated by The Executive office and the Private Sector with many of its buildings repurposed into restaurants, cafes, offices and even a multi-award winning restaurant and brew house.

Ebrington hosts the Peace Pledge Tree and the newly resurfaced Ebrington Square, the former military parade ground, hosts many ‘open air’ public events.
