We were staying in Marlborough Street, which is just around the corner from the Cathedral. we got given the story of the public subscriptions that enabled the Cathedral to be built. Worth a visit if you are into churches.

This is one outstanding cathedral. Worth the 15 minute walk from the historic part of the city. A great place for quiet contemplation.

You don't have to be religious to love this place. This is a remarkable renovation -- if you appreciate the art of restoring a sacred space, this is a not-to-be-missed stop in Derry. We found it moving (an atheist and a Jewish person) and peaceful. Super interesting if you learn a bit about how long it has been there and... More

Beautiful site. Take time or quiet reflection of value of peace that has come to this lovely city. Easy to reach and walk thru. Historic significance

A wonderful cathedral in the center of the city, with masses every day. Lots of history and situated in the middle of what used to be a riot hot spot. Great architecture.

Lovely welcome from the priest when I said I was a visitor. Exquisite choir singing throughout the service. Bought a guide book about the history and showing pictures of previous Bishops. Beautiful stained glass windows. The building was light and airey and decorated in tasteful pastel colours. Wonderful tranquil atmosphere for prayer and meditation.

It is worth climbing up the hill to see this imposing Cathedral on the inside, and to see its community at prayer. At 8 a.m. Mass on a Monday morning there were more men than women among the 200 or so people there. There had already been a Mass at 6.30 a.m. that day, as the community were hosting a... More
