The Guildhall is free to the Public and it is not only gorgeous but educational. There is an Historic, interactive exhibit that is well worth visiting. As an added bonus, the day we visited, there was a Christmas Fair on the second floor. make sure you go up there and at least check out the fantastic organ.

We had a fantastic tour guide who took us around the Guildhall where we learnt how it came to be, how it got its name, how key Derry has been in Ireland's history and the history of the Guildhall. Lasts around an hour. I would strongly recommend to anybody.

The guildhall is a beautiful building inside and out and looks like a church, but has never been one. It has a huge interactive exhibition about the plantation, when british settlers were encouraged to come here. Upstairs is a room for hire which is covered in amazing stained glass windows that tell most of the history of Ireland. If you... More
