  • INSPIRING! From an arts, archeology, and cultural standpoint the Long Tower is a hidden gem. This is an active sanctuary so be respectful (and leave a few pounds). Highlights include the site of St. Columba's original altar. In 1908 the church was renovated so you will find transitional arts and crafts influences in the magnificent stained glass (these are replete with visual references to Derry and St. Columcille, look out for oak leaves and acorns, and doves), and in the intimate baptistery.
  • I've always loved the long tower church Built on the site of the old monastery of st Columba and his monks
  • The long tower is a very prayerful church the spirt Of st Columba and his love of the Blessed Sacrament is very much felt which helps us all to come closer to God I wish the Mass could be always seen on the I pad God bless all thank you
  • must go, they have a introduction of the history of Derry
  • Beautiful church. Make sure to walk down from the walls to visit.

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.
