"Great stop for a feel of recent political history" Derry - Londonderry Tip by CraigT

Derry - Londonderry, Ireland: 5 reviews and 5 photos

  Political tension evident in view from city wall
by CraigT

As we were seeing many sites of ancient history, I also wanted my kids to see some evidence of recent political unrest. Derry provide a great stop off point for us to get a flavor of the old city, while seeing much evidence of the political turmoil of the last few decades. The walk along the city wall provided a look at present and past. The murals are a stark reminder of recent history. We were fortunate to catch an exhibition of Irish dancing at a local cafe.

Address: County Derry
