A must see
Sep 2021
So poignant that these murals are where the events actually took place. There is a real sense of community and a fight for justice and a people honouring the fallen.

These murals are a must see in Derry.The art is simply amazing.The history behind each mural tells the story of how Life was for residents of the Bog Side during the troubles.Each corner you will see a mural depicts a scene from the struggle for freedom.People who died in the fight for freedom and heroes who help make it happen.

Another interesting clutch of murals and displays

A few murals and display boards concentrated into one area. Interesting to see and quite easy to get decent photos.

The People's Gallery is so detailed; our city guide was able to explain each one, and put the topics in context. A worthy stop.

Another Name for the Bogside Artists
Apr 2019 • Solo
There are 7 or 8 murals made by the Bogside Artists (a group of three local artists) and those murals make up what is known as the People's Gallery. Well worth your time in an area that at one time was very violent.

Sobering collection of historical murals
Oct 2017 • Friends
There are several murals in the area depicting different snapshots of Irish history. These works of art, which are very well kept up, are beautiful, but also very sobering because they share glimpses of some very troubled times. These murals are a definite must-see and pay tribute to for anyone visiting Derry. We were lucky enough to have a tour guide that grew up in the area and shared some of his childhood stories with us. Unfortunately our walking tour was cut short due to rain, but we were able to see the rest of the murals from the tour bus.

History in Art

THere are numerous murals and paintings on the sides of buildings depicting the tragedies of Derry. This area is very moving and reminds us that peace is fragile.
