Came across Free Derry Corner by accident as we were travelling through the city. We stopped for a look and were glad we did. The area is smaller than it looks on TV. The wall and the murals were worth seeing.

I never thought I would ever get to walk around this amazing part of Ireland. The history behind this area has had me intrigued for many years. It still has an eerie feel to it. So enjoyed it worth visiting. Highly recommend.

For anybody who lived in the era, these reminders are heart-wrenching. We passed through this neighborhood on a guided tour with an excellent local guide. Having a local guide is recommended, there's a lot churning below the surface.

Our tour guide climbed aboard to take us to different sites in Derry, and tell us the history of this place. This memorial may seem plain and unimpressive, but the history behind it brings a lot of emotion to the surface. Like another reviewer, the U2 song was running through my head the whole time I was here. Our guide,... More

I visited Free Derry Corner in Bogside during a visit to Derry, in Northern Ireland. I felt amazed & quite emotional to see the historic icon. I would recommend to visit Free Derry corner.

If you value your freedom and recognise others' right to resist evil, whether from state oppression or capitalist parasites, get your photo in front of this glorious gable wall. (we did a wedding album shot here!)

We walked over to this iconic wall, having seen it when walking the Derry Walls. the locals that we spoke to were friendly and helpful. It is part of a troubled but rich history of Derry, (Doire in the original) before being Anglisised to Londonderry.

Visited with my wife as part of a trip to Derry. The Bogside is a evocative area that seems to have survived in the face of extraordinary times. The symbol of the place being the gable end of a house standing proud when the remaining street is gone is a powerful reminder of a community refusing to die.

This was a great visit to the Bogside. We walked around after we took a guided tour of the area. There were no "thugs" or people spitting on us as many have mentioned prior to my review. Possibly because they are anti-Irish or anti-Catholic? Just look where those people making those outrageous claims hail from and you will find the... More

Really interesting to see this area in the flesh. Easy walk from city centre. Allow at least an hour to walk around the area. Joining a tour would be even better.
