MY first visit was for a wonderful "Autumn" evening event of poetry, prose and songs - what a treat. The little church and the grounds are adorable. IT's only open on Sundays for 11am mass, I wish it were open more than that, but perhaps this keeps it so special.

Fantastic little church on the city walls, fantastic both inside and out. We are very lucky to have travelled around the world and visited many, many places. One thing we have done for years is visit graveyards if we were in the area. Don't get me wrong we are not weirdoes who go round the world looking at graves, however... More

This little place in much more simplistic that the nearby St.Columb's, but well worth the short walk (less than 100 metres). You can also access the city's walls without steps here.

This is a nice church right off the city walls. I only spent about 15 minutes there, but it was worth it.

Situated near the famous Walls of the city, this church is so close to the Cathedral that it might easily be overlooked, but it is a very lovely church in its own right, beautiful without being imposing, inspiring and calming.

The atmosphere of this beautiful church, which has survived so much, was remarkable. A place to sit and contemplate for a while how far Derry has come and how amazing that the church still stands on the walls, giving welcome to all.

A smaller cosier version of its larger cathedral cousin. Cheerful friendly staff. Peaceful and well looked after

This is quite a small church. Although there was a church on the site since the seventeenth century, this building is Victorian. The most poignant item, I noticed was a poem written in the second world war about the church. The author was serving on board ship and was writing his memories of the church and his desire to return... More

St Augustine's is a small church inside the city walls. It is open to visitors in the summer months. We visited on the European Heritage Open Day. It has a warm and welcoming interior. Although we did not explore the graveyard it many of the historic graves are documented. The Reverend Pat Storey from St Augustine's has been appointed the... More
