The site opened in 1841 as a military barracks and was gifted to the Executive Office under the Reinvestment and Reform Initiative (RRI) in 2001.

The Strategic Investment and Regeneration of Sites (NI) Order 2003 gives the Executive the necessary powers to regenerate the site.

The Ebrington Development Framework details the vision and plans for the regeneration of the site.


From 2003 The Executive Office has invested over £38m in Ebrington. 
Our aim is to bring buildings and lands back into use and provide essential infrastructure to help attract businesses and visitors to deliver economic and social benefits to the City and region.

Many new jobs have been created on site to date and with the potential inclusion of new purpose built Grade A accommodation and a new 4* hotel it is hoped this figure will grow considerably.

Key infrastructure works continue and the impressive new Limavady road site entrance opened in October 2019 helping to ‘open up’ the site for businesses and visitors.


Ebrington has been transformed in recent years to become a vibrant place to work and visit. The scheduled Monument Star Fort Wall, the Listed and Retained buildings, mixed with new build adds considerably to the attraction of Ebrington.

Together with the new public realm and vibrant new event space ‘Ebrington Square.’ Ebrington is a must see venue in the City.
