“Great Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Very well maintained and tourist friendly with guided walks or self touring. One of the few remaining completely walled cites.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Don't be tempted to use the other tour companies, go for the Martin McCrossan one. Our guide, her name sounded like Sorga but no idea how to spell it properly, took us round the wall for a witty, balanced and informative hour. Views from the wall are terrific but getting the history brings it to a different level. She obviously loves Derry and was so enthusiastic.

“The best walls in Ireland...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

but not that impressive on a global scale. You'll be round the whole walls in under an hour, unless you are taken by the couple of churches.

“Historical city walls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We enjoyed a walking tour of several areas of Derry, including the Bogs and the city wall. Our guide was very knowledgable and passionate about Irish history and the Troubles. Interesting. The views from many parts of the wall were terrific, and we saw one church in particular that was beautiful.
