I had the pleasure of accompanying my american cousins on the tour of these walls with Martin Crossan Tours.Excellent tour and very reasonably priced too.This is a must for any visitor in Derry to hear about the city with the Siege of Derry and also with the "Troubles".Great views across the city and excellent storytelling.

Rated as one of the 1001 things to do before you die, it was great to get to walk historic city walls in our own country. The walk was a lot shorter than we had expected but enjoyable non the less. There is plenty of information available along the way if you are interested in the history. We just enjoyed... More

I recently toured the City Walls for the first time and really enjoyed walking around the walls and looking out over the city. It's definitely worth taking an hour or two to walk around and look at the different murals and historical sites.

the only place in Ireland where the town/city walls are intact make Derry a must for any history buff. The city is steeped in history and that combined with an excellent selection of shops nearby make Derry a great location for a weekend break
