Northern Ireland’s admirable second city, behind Belfast, is home to a proud community and rich heritage. Derry is still synonymous with the Troubles for many and indeed, has a long history of sectarian tension and unrest. With the passage of time and development of relative “Celtic Tiger” prosperity on the Emerald Isle however, change has come to Derry and with it, waves of new international arrivals.

Of course, as the home of the infamous Bloody Sunday massacre of 1972 (familiar to some only as a U2 song), visitors do make a point to visit the Derry ‘hood of Bogside and marvel at the nonpareil murals of Tom Kelly, William Kelly and Kevin Hasson. Known as the Bogside Artists, the trio took it upon themselves to transform the scarred enclave of town into a commemorative canvas in 1993. The brilliant ensemble of collaborative urban art is now a remarkable showcase for Derry. The town’s history extends way beyond Northern Ireland’s record of religious strife however. To wit, Derry is the only city on the island of Ireland with intact medieval walls. Standout points of interest to consider on your of this superb town of 85,000 people include the Museum of Free Derry, the Guildhall and the cathedrals of Saint Eugene and Saint Columb.

Since the peace process, Derry has emerged as an exciting cosmopolitan city with a young population with plenty of modern bars, clubs, restaurants and thriving music scene. There are still many traditional pubs where you can prop up the bar with the friendly and welcoming locals however.

Derry is home to a number of museums including the Workhouse Museum illustrating the terrible conditions during the Irish Famine – and The People’s Gallery – telling the story of the Bogside Artists who painted murals depicting Derry’s years of turbulent history and unrest.
