  • In order to trully apreciate the historical importance of this place one needs to know at least a little some of the facts that happened here in the 70's and 80's. Without the historical background the whole place seems empty. Although this is one of the main attractions in Derry, there are no signs with explanations about the historical facts.
  • Very emotional milestone where you can feel full Irish's story. It's only a message painted in a wall but it drives you elsewhere, other times when life wasn't easy in Free Derry
  • Loved Derry. A hugely informative tour run from the TI office....highly recommend.
  • There is no phone number for free Derry corner, it was formally the gable end of a house. But at the start of the troubles, a local man John caker Casey, painted the immortal words, you are now entering free Derry on it, when the area was being saturated by b.specials and Ruc plus the British army. It was also a gathering point for rally's. It is now a well known monument of resistance
  • Derry Murals good art and glimpse back into the history of Ireland. Good for photography opportunity.

Where to stay in Derry

Derry, or Londonderry, town center is a lively place to stay. Although the town itself suffered during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the center stayed safe and has thrived. Consider an inn in the town center, perhaps a building painted with one of the well-known murals. less expensive hotels are available just outside the town's central area, close enough to the main attractions for convenient access.
