We used the main hall for our book launch and it added an extra sparkle and ambience to our event. The staff were friendly and knowledable.

“Legenderry!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

This city has so many names but the best is 'Legenderry'! A brief visit on a sunny September afternoon proved to be just the ticket for our South African visitors. We didn't have much time as we rode the train from Coleraine(a fabulous scenic ride) and just had under 2 hours to spend in the city. Our first priority was food & drink and we found exactly what we wanted on the Guildhall patio overlooking the river and the Peace Bridge. We were received by Guildhall staff as though we were the most important visitors of the day and shown to the cafe where we enjoyed a delicious light meal. The recently renovated Guildhall with its exhibitions would merit an extensive visit in itself but we didn't have time. Then a brief foray to see some of the walls before heading back to the train and a repeat of the scenic ride. Excellent!

“great building”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Went in quickly in a walking tour of Derry. Has a interesting statue of Queen Victoria, missing a few parts. Loved the inside architecture. Worth seeing if in Derry

“Beautiful building”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

This building was a total surprise.

From the outside it is reasonably elegant. But the inside is breathtakingly beautiful.

Wife and I are particular fans of pipe organs. Unfortunately, our visit was very brief, and did not coincide with a concert.
