Derry Walls Private Walking Tour
From US$24,19

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.

What to Expect

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.

My tour with Gleann was fantastic. The history of the Derry is extraordinary. Gleann has a very deep understanding of the history of Derry, and was great at explaining it. Highly recommended.

A Must

Well done for Gleann for a thoroughly absorbing tour and insight into the earlier history of the city. I promise you won't be disappointed. You'll get your own personal guide and learn a lot from someone who knows what he's talking about.
