Nice walk and good scenery

You can visit the whole city walls in 1 hour or less. The whole way is very neat, clean and with beautiful views of the town.

We met with some bad weather while we were in Derry and some heavy rains drove us off the wall and into a cafe to dry off and warm up when we had walked halfway around. We would have loved to complete the entire walk. There are many access points on and off so you can walk around the neighborhoods,... More

Martin McCrossan City Walking Tours is excellent value for money and most enjoyable. I took Tour of City Walls early September 2016 and found the whole eperience very entertaining, informative, enjoyable, relaxing, and the cup of free coffee was most generous considering it only cost 4 Sterling pounds for the tour. If you do nothing else in Derry do this... More

The walls from the 1600's completely circle the old city. You can walk the entire way along the top with views of the surrounding town. Plaques along the way explain the area with interesting info. There is a craft village and interesting old church easily reached from the walls.

Only walled city in Ireland. Walk around walls provides great views and photo-ops. Some ups and downs, but well-paved.

Beautiful construction steeped in history. Well worth a walk along these iconic walls. Views over the bogside allow you to see the recent history of the City with the murals on gavel houses. You also walk past the Apprentics Boys of Derry building and along their annual parade route. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing these

We love walled cities...and Derry is a great one to visit. You can walk all the way around and see great views and the entire town. From their website: This is the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland and one of the finest examples of Walled Cities in Europe. The Walls were built during the period 1613-1618 by the...

A great way to learn about the city is to take a guided tour around the wall with a guide starting at th visitor centre.
