Owner description: The historic Guildhall is one of Derry's most recognisable landmarks, located in the heart of the city since 1890. The Guildhall is a must see visitor attraction with over 20 magnificent stained glass windows representing the history of the city and the Plantation of Ulster exhibition . The newly refurbished and award winning Guildhall provides a unique and state of the art venue for events. The main hall has a capacity of up to 600 standing or 400 seated and provides a stunning backdrop for corporate hire, conferences, events and civil ceremonies. The Whittaker Suite can accommodate up to 60 and is the perfect space for business meetings, functions and civil ceremonies. All spaces are equipped with state of the art technology for sound, audio and lighting.

Beautiful, worth a visit, right facing the peace bridge. Lovely fountain outside. And they had a history exhibition running while we were there, which we found very interesting

Well worth the visit...proved to exceed our expectations.....a wonderfully restored architectural gem...the main hall is outstanding......the Plantation of Ulster exhibition is historically accurate, politically unbiassed, highly educational for ALL ages, taken at your own pace, worth spending time following it....explains so much of the City & the walls in an Irish, British & European context with actual artifacts and models.....all you need to know about the Plantation....and it is FREE...!!

You get an immediate sense that you are very welcome and appreciated in the city of Londonderry.This is a beautifully restored building that also contains the TI. There is no charge to visit it's hands on and fascinating history museum as well as to view the rest of the building. Docents are around to answer any questions.
