Walk atop Derry's City Walls, the only completely intact ones in Ireland. They date back to the 17th century, and today give you an unobstructed perspective down onto the old town they contain. As you stroll along the 1.5-km (0.93-mi) promenade, stop to admire the four original gates and three more that the city added over the years. The Walls remain open from dawn until dusk and are free of charge. You can find plenty of seating if you need to pause during your walk. To plan Derry vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

For a historical wall visit u might be better take a tour to learn that little bit more. But if you want to see some of the real sites of Derry/ Londonderry then go for a walk round the walls. Id sugest to start at the guildhall and go up the steps to right and go anti clockwise. Easier on the legs
When you visit the North-West of Ireland be sure to stop at Derry city. Here you can walk around the entire city on top of the original walls. There are various inclines and declines but this is to be expected on such a historical landmark. Best of all you can spend as much time as you want and read about where you are thanks to the various information boards dotted around.
