Reviewed 12 August 2014

Free and very informative. Good to do especially on a rainy day. It doesn't take long. Found out lots about the Ulster Plantation which I had long forgotten since school.

“Very Beautiful Building”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Been to Derry many times over the years, but never visited the Guildhall.
The building has been renovated in recent years and is a lovely place to visit.
I collect books on Derry, and Elizabeth at reception was very helpful in her knowledge and advice.....Thankyou Elizabeth, I would employ you any day.
If you get chance visit the Guildhall, it has fine examples of stained glass...with different scenes from Derry's past.

The guildhall was a beautiful building. In July 2014 the city held a Flavours of the Foyle, seafood festival just outside of the guildhall. This was excellent. The food was amazing.

What a great place to hear a concert. Check the what's happening in Derry websites. The place is a quick tour, and one you won't regret.
