The walls are impressive not just for their size and completeness but also because they are a part of a living city and not only a monument. Additionally, if you want to get a sense of the history of Northern Ireland both historical and its recent past, a walk along the city walls provides an half hour experiential whirlwind in... More

For information about a town wrapped in history then I suggest a trip around the city walls .Not only for tourists but will educate local people as well as entertain. However, as there is a lot of walking it may not be appropriate for those with disabilities. The cost is relatively cheap and the entertainment is free.

We were accompanied by a couple of friends who have lived there for around nine years and had never gone right around. Still with much of the... More

We traveled to Derry on our way from Giant's Causeway to Galway and are so glad we did. The walls were wonderful, a pleasant little walk with lots to see and read along the way. The old churches with cemeteries were interesting and my boys loved to see the canons. I would highly recommend. Best place to enter the walls,... More

The City Walls are very impressive. Just seeing them is great but taking the tour is an eye opener. Derry has am impressive, and not always happy, history, but the people and the City are awesome.
