Derry is one of the longest continued used area in Ireland dating back some six thousand years.

The Irish response to this invasion was the Nine Years War 1594-1603, ending with the Flight of the Earls in 1607. The Plantation of Ulster brought thousands of English and Scottish Protestants to Ulster and the building of the City Walls from 1613.

Derry became Londonderry under James I and was financed by the Guilds of London where the Guildhall gets its name. The Siege of Derry, The Fountain Estate, Derry Gaol, Apprentice Boys, Great Hunger and emigration are areas that are covered on this tour also. This walking tour is conducted on Derry's walls while walking the 1.4 km circuit of the walls.

Our guide, Gleann, was so professional and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our tour and all the history associated with the wall. It was amazing how he covered so many centuries and tied together many of the events we had heard about on prior tours. Thanks Gleann!
