Ballykelly lies three miles west of Limavady on the road to Londonderry.  A small town, Ballykelly nevertheless commands attention for its pastoral scenery and notable historical landmarks including Tamlaghtfinlagan Parish Church, built by Earl Frederick Hervey, 18th Century Bishop of Derry and Presbyterian Church, Drummond Hotel and North West Independent Hospital, all built by the London Company of Fishmongers.  Nearby Walworth wood hosts some of the native woods in Ulster and also provides picnic areas and jogging/walking trails.  The village was host to many Allied Airmen as a base for the RAF during the Second World War.
