The guide is very well informed and his personal connection to the wall and history surrounding it was very moving!
Meet your guide at a time and place of your choosing—a private tour means you have convenience and flexibility on your side—and set off on a walk around the entire circumference of Derry’s 17th-century walls, which stretch just shy of 1 mile (1.5 km).
Northern Ireland’s second-largest city, and the only completely walled city in all of Ireland, Derry has thousands of years of history behind it. During your private tour, your guide will share stories from its past, from the earliest settlements thousands of years ago to its monastic period and the series of wars that marked its history.
As you go, you’ll also see the wall’s sights—including its seven gates and 24 hand-restored cannons—and admire views overlooking the city. The tour concludes when you’ve walked the length of the wall, and at a time and place that is convenient for your itinerary.
On this convenient private tour, you won’t just enjoy an overview of Derry’s major attractions: you’ll walk the entire perimeter of its 17th-century walls. One of the best-preserved examples of a walled European city, Derry is rich in heritage. Learn about the city’s thousands of years of history, and admire views overlooking Derry and its landmarks as you go.
