One of our first stops when we visited the NorthWest recently. This attraction is situated near the Peace Bridge and the City Hotel. It is really worth visiting. Just ask for Gerry to give you a tour of the place - he really knows his stuff and is so well informed about the history of the City and the Guildhall.... More

Take time to walk through the history and explore. This building is built like a castle. Helpful staff. We went during a special function for children with disabilities. Security people who were there for the event were very helpful to us (as tourists).

This is a free exhibition. The Guildhall is very beautiful. There is plenty out on display and is very informative. It is well worth a visit. It is across from the peace bridge so very handy to find.

Lovely building and fabulous for a wedding. Loved the free "tour" of the windows which related the history of the city.

When you are in Derry, be sure to stop by the Guildhall. The tour guides inside are tremendously helpful, kind, and informative. The historical walk through on the first floor is fascinating. All in all, Guildhall is a short stop, but a fun and enriching experience.

I visited during the Christmas fair and Derry Film Festival, both occasions were different from each other, one day one evening, and I'd recommend this as a great way to view the Guildhall - when there is something going on.

Visited The Guildhall to watch the Bloody Sunday Enquiry a number of years back, have now revisited the building which has been spruced up quite a bit. Fine building and worthwhile seeing internally.

Saw the Guildhall at night and during the day. It is a stunning building and at night it takes on a fairy tale like appearance.
