Derry City has grown into one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. Our historic City Walls are 400 years old, and we remain the only fully intact walled City in Ireland, and one of the finest in Europe. The best way to explore the Walls is to join one of the award winning tours, combining the historic facts with local charm.
