“Nice Building!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We enjoyed our walk around this hall the staff were very friendly and helpful esp a lovely young girl from Canada and one of the tour guide staff gave us a few minutes of her time to explain some of the history behind the organ and the beautiful celling in the council chamber! It was very nice to be greeted by a giant statue of our late Queen Victoria:) A very nice experience would recommend a visit!

“Guild hall, Derry Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Just came back from the Fledh in Derry. The Guildhall has been completely renovated. The main room upstairs has a magnificent pipe organ and the room itself has been beautifully restored. Well worth a visit.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Refurbished recently. There's a wonderful exhibition on the ground floor and there's no admission charge. Take time to gaze at the stained glass windows.

“A beautiful building!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We called in as we knew the building had been refurbished and we were so glad we did! The interior is gorgeous the woodwork and the stained glass is fantastic a must see!! The staff are so friendly and full of good advice and really helpful. The exhibition was closed but it didn't matter it was well worth a visit.
