The Derrys Walls are one of the most visited attractions for tourists passing through the city of Derry! You will have the opportunity to discover the oldest fortifications in the city, which is over 1450 years old!
The city of Derry was fortified very early on: the first defensive walls would date back to the 5th century. The tour takes you around the most important walls of the city walls. You will also come across crenellated towers, protected passages, as well as traces within the walls, revealing the sometimes troubled history of Derry.
The cannons protecting the city have been preserved to help you get back to the heart of Derry’s heritage.
It takes about an hour to walk around it. The visit is free, and free of charge, unless you wish to explore the walls with a guide. The guided tour is fun and attractive, and provides a lot of insight into Derry’s history.
