The Derry Walls

A walk around the walls of Derry~Londonderry,the second-largest city in Northern Ireland and the fourth-largest city on the island of Ireland, reveals a splendid city crammed full of history, heritage, interest and a vibrant cultural scene. This is the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland and one of the finest examples of Walled Cities in Europe. A guided walking tour is thoroughly recommended.



A largely Irish-speaking region bordering the Atlantic Ocean in northwestern Ireland,County Donegal is made up of castles, rugged coastline and mountains such as the quartzite Mount Errigal. Glenveagh National Park, once a private estate, encompasses forests, lakes and bogland in the Derryveagh Mountains. From Ireland's most northerly point, Malin Head to the majestic Slieve League, a 600 metre cliff face rising up from the raging ocean, and on to the fairytale Donegal Town, it certainly is a breath taking experience.

St Columb's Cathedral

It is the city’s most historic building containing displays of artefacts from the Siege, a fine collection of silver Communion plate, as well as information on famous personalities, e.g. Cecil Francis Alexander (the internationally renowned hymn writer), the Earl Bishop and the philosopher George Berkeley.
